National Center for Research Resources

The National Center for Research Resources (NCRR) announces the

following modifications to its ongoing Program Announcements

PAR-94-083, "Developing and Improving Institutional Animal Resources"

and PAR-94-084, "Animal Facility Improvement for Small Research

Programs, both of which appeared in the NIH GUIDE, Volume 23, Number

27, July 22, 1994.

The first modification is to reflect the NCRR intent to triage those

applications submitted for the February 1, 1995, and later receipt

dates.  Applicants should substitute the following language for the

first paragraph under "REVIEW CONSIDERATIONS," which appeared in the

July 22, 1994 GUIDE:

"Upon receipt, applications will be reviewed for completeness by DRG

and responsiveness by the NCRR.  Incomplete applications will be

returned to the applicant without further consideration.  If staff

find that the application is not responsive to this program, it will

be returned without further consideration.

Applications that are complete and responsive to this program

announcement will be evaluated for scientific and technical merit by

an appropriate peer review group convened by the NCRR in accordance

with the review criteria stated below.  As part of the initial merit

review, a process (triage) may be used by the initial review group in

which applications will be determined to be competitive or non-

competitive based on their scientific merit relative to other

applications received in response to this program announcement.

Applications judged to be competitive will be discussed and be

assigned a priority score.  Applications determined to be non-

competitive will be withdrawn from further consideration and the

principal investigator/program director and the official signing for

the applicant organization will be notified."

The second modification is a change in the address to which the two

additional copies of applications are to be sent.  Substitute the

following for the address that appeared in each program announcement
