NOTICE:  NOT-RM-04-009

National Institutes of Health (NIH) 

This addendum to RFA-RM-04-005, “National Technology Centers for Networks and 
Pathways” (at 
which was released in the NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts on 
September 30, 2003 gives notice that NIH staff wish to clarify an error and 
an omission with respect to page limits and budget pages for subprojects.

The correct page limits are 25 pages for each of the subprojects in core 1, 
25 pages for each DBP in core 2, and 25 pages for each of cores 4, 5, and 6.  
The page limits for each project in cores 1 and 2 are for the total of 
sections A through D (specific aims, background and significance, preliminary 
work, and project design and methods) for the research plan of that project.  
Cores 3, 4, 5, and 6 may be structured however the applicant deems 
appropriate, but must be confined to 25 pages each.

Applications should contain an overall detailed budget, and projections for 
the entire project period of five years.  Budgets containing the same level 
of detail, also on form page 4, should be supplied for the following:  Each 
of the technology development projects contained in Core 1, each of the 
driving biological projects in Core 2, and if not redundant with these two 
categories, for each consortium or subcontract agreement.  Separate budgets 
should also be included for each of Cores 3, 4, 5, and 6.

The budget pages should be presented together.  The budget justification 
should be organized by budget section.
