NOTICE:  NOT-OD-02-066 (See NOT-OD-03-054 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 416-9 face pages to an electronic format.  As discussed in 
the May 2, 2002 Notice on this topic, 
the last hard copy mailing of pre-printed face pages was mailed in late 
June for those progress reports with November 2002 start dates.  
Beginning with December 2002 start dates and beyond; e.g., those 
progress reports due on/after October 1, 2002, grantees will need to 
access a website to determine which progress reports are due.  

Now available at: the NIH 
Office of Extramural Research has launched a website of Non-competing 
Progress Report due date information.  Grantee officials can query 
using their Institutional Profile Number (IPF) to return a list of 
"due" progress reports.  If an official is not certain of the IPF, a 
companion query is also available at the site to help determine the 
appropriate IPF. 

Grantee officials should plan to review this list at least once a 
month.  Several months of "due" information will be in the query at all 
times and records will drop off of the list as NIH receives the 
progress reports.  New records will be added on/around the 30th of each 

As mentioned in the May 2, 2002 Notice, this new website is one of two 
ways due date information will be made available to grantees.  The 
second way will be through the NIH Commons.  When this option becomes 
available, details will be published in the GUIDE. 

Progress reports should continue to be mailed directly to the NIH 
awarding Institute/Center.  A list of Institute/Center mailing 
addresses for progress reports is found at:

Questions concerning this query should be addressed to the eRA 
Helpdesk: e-mail:  Questions concerning submission 
of progress reports should be directed to the specific NIH
