The table below applies to NIH fellowships and cooperation agreements with national organizations. The table lists activities and/or expenditures requiring prior authorisation of a GMO in accordance with the general conditions for awarding public contracts (e.g., extended authorities). B, Federal Protest Partnership (FDP) or the terms of the nih policy statement, and also includes activities and/or expenses for which nih has waived the prior authorization requirement on the basis of a class. The information in this table is only used for guidance purposes. Any questions regarding the need for prior authorization for an activity or cost under a specific NIH bonus should be directed to the PAF team who will continue to monitor the designated GMO. A supplement is a formal request to adopt an existing grant or cooperation agreement. NIDA supports two types of complementary programs (administrative supplements and revision applications), and the differences between these two types of additions are described below. Applicants are invited to contact the program officer assigned to them for any questions related to the development of a supplementary application. Consider why NIAID uses a cooperation agreement instead of an R-Series grant.
What does this mean for you as a project manager/lead investigator (PD/PI)? Here are examples of normal and substantial participation on the date of use of a cooperation agreement. (Normal employee shareholding does not require a cooperation agreement.) Below are examples of activities that would require a cooperation agreement: use this tool to determine whether the participation of NIAID staff requires the use of a cooperation agreement to finance an extramural project. For more, employees can go to Cooperative Agreements personal portal. Federal administrative requirements allow authorities to waive certain pre-authorizations related to costs and administrative requirements; these authorities are called extended authorities. In 2001, NIH extended the extended authorities to all NIH premiums, with the exception of the provision which will be automatically transferred to unrelated balances. Some contracting instruments, grant programs and certain types of beneficiaries are systematically excluded from the power to automatically transfer unrelated balances. These include centres (P50, P60, P30 and others); Cooperation Agreements (U); Kirschstein-NRSA Institutional Research Training Scholarships (T); unan-accelerated SBIR and STTR (R43 and R41) prices; clinical studies (regardless of activity code) and distinctions to individuals. Given the nature of the cooperation agreements, you can expect NIAID staff to work more closely with you and program more frequent communications than for a PD/PI scholarship. You may also need to get your approval to initiate or continue the work phases. However, if we use a cooperation agreement for clinical trials, PD/PI and our employees will work very closely several hours a week to develop and conduct a study and related studies.
Before you apply for a NIAID-supported U, find out the impact of the cooperation agreement, look at important parts of the FOA, ask for advice and find out what to do next.
