The National Institutes of Health (NIH) announces the
publication of the revised NIH Grants Policy Statement (NIHGPS, rev. November
2016). This revision is applicable to all NIH grants and cooperative
agreements with budget periods beginning on or after October 1, 2016. This
revision supersedes, in its entirety, the NIH Grants Policy Statement
(October/November 2015) as a standard term and condition of award.
Previous versions of the NIHGPS remain applicable as a standard term and condition
for all NIH grants and cooperative agreements with budget periods that began
prior to October 1, 2016.
While this revision does not introduce any new material for
the first time, it incorporates new and modified requirements, clarifies
certain policies, and implements changes in statutes, regulations, and policies
that have been implemented through appropriate legal and/or policy processes
since the previous version of the NIHGPS dated October/November 2015. The
document is available in the following electronic formats: HTML and PDF (http://grants.nih.gov/grants/policy/nihgps/index.htm).
Prior versions of the NIHGPS are accessible at http://grants.nih.gov/grants/policy/policy.htm#gps.
