The purpose of this Guide Notice is to inform grantees of the interim general conditions of NIH grant awards aligned with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) regulations implementing OMB's Uniform Guidance at 45 CFR Part 75. Although 45 CFR Part 75 related updates are the focus of the NIH Interim General Grant Conditions document, current policy is reiterated to provide recipients with further context (e.g., cost considerations, NIH standard terms of award, special award conditions, and grants appeal procedures). The Interim General Grant Conditions document is being issued in order to serve as the applicable terms and conditions for recipients of NIH awards, until such time as revised Research Terms and Conditions become effective. The NIH Interim General Grant Conditions document is available at: https://grants.nih.gov/grants/policy/policy.htm.
These conditions are effective for Notices of Award (NoA) issued on or after December 26, 2014, that obligate new or supplemental funds. NoAs issued on or after December 26, 2014 that do not involve obligation of new or supplemental funds remain subject to 45 CFR Part 74 or Part 92, as applicable, until such time that new funds are obligated.
