This Notice informs the community of an application forms issue with PAR-18-464, Clinical and Translational Science Award (U54 Clinical Trial Optional).

The application forms package originally posted with this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) incorrectly included a required “Enrichment Program” component that is not relevent or required for submission to PAR-18-464. 

To address this issue, a new application forms package which includes only the necessary components for submission to PAR-18-464 has been posted in The corrected package is identified by a Competition ID of ‘FORMS-E-REVISED’. Applicants who have initiated applications using the original (FORMS-E) package must move to the FORMS-E-REVISED application package to successfully submit.

Note: ASSIST and many institutional system-to-system solutions allow application data to be easily copied from one application package to another. If using ASSIST, contact the eRA Service Desk if you need assistance using the ASSIST Copy feature.

This change impacts application packages for the February 2, 2018 receipt date and any following receipt dates.

All other aspects of this FOA are unchanged.
