National Institutes of Health (NIH)
This Notice serves to announce that NIH anticipates adopting new research training data table formats in FY 2016 for use with institutional training grant applications and Research Performance Progress Reports (RPPRs). Where specified in the SF424 Application Guide or Funding Opportunity Announcement for a program, these tables may also be used in institutional career development and research education applications and RPPRs.
In keeping with the recommendations of the Advisory Committee to the Director’s Biomedical Workforce Working Group, NIH is developing an electronic system, xTRACT, for creating research training data tables and storing the information reported in those tables. In conjunction with the creation of that electronic system, and to implement related recommendations from the Biomedical Workforce Working Group, NIH expects to make a number of changes in its existing training data tables, including:
To the extent possible, existing NIH data will be used to pre-populate the xTRACT system, including trainee names and selected characteristics, institutions, grant numbers, and subsequent NIH awards.
