Purpose

The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) announces a change in policy regarding an application submission for PAR-14-227 "Workers Compensation Surveillance". Effective immediately, NIOSH will accept a new (A0) application following an unsuccessful resubmission (A1) application for this FOA.

NIOSH will not assess the similarity of the science in the new (A0) application to any previously reviewed submission when accepting an application for review. Although a new application does not allow an introduction or responses to the previous peer reviews, generally NIOSH encourages an applicant to refine and strengthen an application submission.
