3.1 Federalwide Standard Terms and Conditions for Research Grants

In order to create greater consistency in the administration of Federal research awards, all Federal research agencies now utilize a standard core set of administrative terms and conditions on research and research-related awards, to the extent practicable. The core set of administrative requirements for participating Federal research agencies and other pertinent documents are posted at: http://www.nsf.gov/bfa/dias/policy/rtc/index.jsp. Recipients are encouraged to review the companion documents which include a Prior Approval Matrix, National Policy Requirement Matrix, Subaward Requirement Matrix, and Agency-Specific Requirements. NIH implementation of these Federalwide research terms and conditions is also known as the "NIH Standard Terms of Award".
