Notice Number: NOT-OD-17-043
Release Date: February 17, 2017
National Institutes of Health (NIH)
In September we announced a new policy requiring all applications involving one or more clinical trials be submitted through a Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) specifically designed for clinical trials (NOT-OD-16-147). The policy improves our ability to identify clinical trials, ensure appropriate clinical trial data collection, and uniformly apply trial-specific review criteria. This notice updates the community on our evolving plans in this area, including an adjustment to the effective date.
New Effective Date
Effective January 25, 2018, all grant applications with plans to conduct clinical trials must be submitted in response to an FOA which specifically states that clinical trials are allowed.
After that date, applications planning a clinical trial that are submitted to a non-clinical trial FOA will be returned without review.
Requests for proposals (RFPs) will be updated with comparable clinical trial data collection requirements for proposal due dates on or after January 25, 2018.
