NIH Grants Policy Statement
Revised October 2017. This document applies to all NIH grants and cooperative agreements for budget periods beginning on or after October 1, 2017.

16.1 General

Most of the policies contained in IIA apply to NIH grants made to foreign organizations and international organizations (hereafter "foreign grants"), including the requirements of 45 CFR 75 and the cost principles incorporated by reference in those regulations. If an applicant/recipient would be unable to comply with these requirements, the AOR should contact the GMO. Specific exceptions and modifications of IIA requirements for foreign grants, and highlights of other policies, are set forth in this chapter. This chapter also includes policies that apply to domestic grants with a foreign component.
