The PHS 398 (rev. 10/88) and PHS 2590 (rev. 10/88) grant application

forms include a section on OTHER SUPPORT, where applicants are expected

to list all, including both Federal and non-Federal, active support and

pending and planned requests for support of research and

research-related activities by all key personnel listed for each

application.  This information is important to PHS review-award

processes to help evaluate the compatibility of application requests

with investigators' capabilities and responsibilities, and eliminate

unwarranted duplication of support for investigators' efforts.

Application instructions emphasize the requirement for complete,

accurate, and reliable information.  In signing the face page of the

application the principal investigator/program director and the

applicant institution official certify that the application information

is accurate and complete.

Applicants are reminded of the necessity to provide the full and

reliable information requested.  As noted in the instructions,

"Incomplete, inaccurate, or ambiguous information about OTHER SUPPORT

could lead to delays in review of the application." Further, applicants

should be cognizant that serious consequences could result if failure

to provide complete and accurate information be construed as an attempt

to mislead PHS agency advisory groups and staff in their review and

award responsibilities.
