NOTICE:  NOT-OD-02-047 (see NOT-OD-02-066 for update)

National Institutes of Health (NIH)

NIH continues to transition the notification of Non-Competing Grant 
Progress Reports from a hard copy mailing of preprinted electronic PHS 
2590 and PHS 416 face pages to an electronic notification.  To 
facilitate this transition, NIH will continue mailing pre-printed type 
5 face pages for awards with start dates through November 2002.  
November provides a two-month extension from the previously announced 
cessation date to allow grantees and NIH staff time to transition to 
the new business practices.

NIH will make information on due dates for Non-Competing Grant Progress 
Reports accessible electronically in two ways:  

1. Starting in August 2002, the NIH Office of Extramural Research 
will host a public website of Non-competing Progress Report due 
date information that will have search and sort capabilities. 
Grantees may choose to use this website until they register for 
the NIH Commons.  Users of this website will not receive 
reminders electronically or have pre-printed face pages 

2. Upon registration for the NIH Commons, institutional officials 
will have the opportunity to establish a central e-mail address 
for notification of NIH pending actions and general NIH Commons 
activities.  By this means the institution will receive a list of 
pending non-competing progress reports.

Once Principal investigators (PIs) create an account and provide 
their preferred e-mail they will have the option to receive e-
mail reminders of Non-competing Progress Report due dates with 
links to pre-populated face pages. 

We expect registration for the NIH Commons to begin in August 

This notification is an update to the July 10, 2001 NIH Guide notice 
entitled Revised PHS 398 and PHS 2590 Now Available and the January 7, 
2002 notice entitled Use of Non-Competing Grant Progress Report (PHS 
2590) Face Pages.
