NATIONAL INSTITUTES OF HEALTH EXPANDS PROVISIONS OF THE ELECTRONIC STREAMLINED NONCOMPETING AWARD PROCESS AND REQUIRES ELECTRONIC SUBMISSION OF STREAMLINED NONCOMPETING AWARD PROCESS PROGRESS REPORTS BEGINNING AUGUST 1, 2010: NOT-OD-10-093

Issued by:

National Institutes of Health

Beginning with streamlined noncompeting award process (SNAP) progress reports due on/after August 1, 2010, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) will require the use of the Electronic Research Administration (eRA) Commons electronic SNAP (eSNAP) module for the submission of all SNAP progress reports. Concurrently, NIH is expanding the SNAP provisions, described later, to all SNAP awards.

The eRA eSNAP enables grantees to submit an electronic version of the SNAP type 5 (noncompeting) progress report through the eRA Commons. Grantees should refer to the "Notice of Award," under Section II "Terms and Conditions," to determine whether SNAP provisions apply to a particular award. In general, this streamlined process applies to all R series grant activity codes except for Outstanding Investigator grants (R35s), phase 1 small business innovation research (SBIR) grants (R43), and phase 1 small business technology transfer (STTR) grants (R41). For phase 1 SBIR/STTR awards that exceed 1 year and phase 2 SBIR/STTR, grantees should review the Notice of Award to determine if their project is subject to or excluded from the SNAP provisions. Career award activity codes are also routinely covered under SNAP. Those activity codes routinely excluded from SNAP are generally those that do not have the authority to automatically carry over unobligated balances (centers, cooperative agreements, institutional training including Kirschstein National Research Service Award [NRSA] grants and non-fast-track phase 1 SBIR and STTR awards), clinical trials (regardless of activity codes), program project grants (P01s), and Outstanding Investigator grants (R35s).

Streamlined noncompeting award process instructions for submitting the progress report appear in the Public Health Service (PHS) 2590 Non-Competing Continuation Progress Report under Section 2.1: http://grants.nih.gov/grants/funding/2590/2590.htm. Electronic SNAP is the electronic submission of SNAP progress reports. This eRA Commons tool is based on the data collected in the PHS 2590. When …
