Revised NIH Grants Policy Statement Published, Effective October 1, 2012

The National Institutes of Health has announced publication of the revised NIH Grants Policy Statement (NIHGPS, rev.10/1/2012), applicable to all NIH grants and cooperative agreements with budget periods beginning on or after October 1, 2012.

The revision does not introduce any new material, but “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.” NIH has provided a Word document that summarizes the significant changes implemented with the revision.
