This email is a reminder of the requirement to obtain prior approval before any PD/PI or Senior/Key Personnel specifically named in the NIH notice of award:
- withdraws from the project entirely;
- will be absent from the project during any continuous period of 3 months or more;
- reduces time devoted to the project by 25% or more from the level that was approved at the time of the initial competing year award. Reductions are cumulative, i.e., the 25% threshold may be reached by two or more successive reductions that total 25% or more.
It is the PI(s)' and department's responsibility to monitor the status and level of effort of PD/PIs and Senior/Key Personnel.
See the NIH Grants Policy Statement section 188.8.131.52 for additional details and information that must be included in the prior approval request. Contact your Sponsored Projects team if you have any questions. Posted 2/13/2018
