The National Institutes of Health published a revised NIH Grants Policy Statement (NIHGPS, rev. 10/1/2010), applicable to all NIH grants and cooperative agreements with budget periods beginning on or after October 1, 2010. NIH provides a chapter-by-chapter summary of significant changes (Microsoft Word).
This revision supersedes, in its entirety, the NIH Grants Policy Statement (12/03) as a standard term and condition of award. However, the December 2003 NIHGPS continues to be the standard term and condition for all NIH grants and cooperative agreements with budget periods that began between December 1, 2003 and September 30, 2010.
