Purpose

The purpose of this Notice is to correct budget instructions in PAR-15-189 "Lasker Clinical Research Scholars Program Si2/R00".

Current instructions

  • A $0 budget can be provided for the intramural (Si2) phase. A few required form fields must be completed to move from one budget period to the next even if the budget period requests $0.
    • Select the appropriate Budget Type.
    • Provide the Budget Period Start Date and End Date.
    • In Section A: Senior/Key Persons provide an entry for the PD/PI, including 0.01 calendar months as the level of effort, $0 for Requested Salary and $0 for Fringe Benefits.
    • In Section F: Other Direct Costs add a line item titled 'R00 Independent Phase' and provide the total request for that period (up to $449,000).
    • In Section H. Indirect Costs: leave this field blank.
  • Itemized budget information is not required for the R00 phase; a total requested amount for each period is acceptable. However, some basic information must be completed in order for NIH to successfully process the budget form. For each budget period of the R00 phase:
    • Select the appropriate Budget Type.
    • Provide the Budget Period Start Date and End Date.
    • In Section F: Other Direct Costs add a line item titled 'R00 Independent Phase' and provide the total request for that period (up to $449,000).

At the time of transition to the R00 phase, the R00 applicant institution will submit a detailed budget for each budget period of the R00 project period that reflects the direct and indirect costs at the R00 applicant institution.
