Grant deadlines
NIH Grant Changes
NIH has finalized instructions regarding grant elements that will improve the rigor and reproducibility of federally-funded research (for full details see NIH notice NOT-OD-16-011 and associated notices NOT-OD-15-103 and NOT-OD-15-102).  These policies take effect for most NIH research proposals submitted for due dates on or after 25 January 2016.  The notice of award requires language within the Approach section of the proposal and will be a reviewable/scorable element by study section.
We wanted to take this opportunity to let you know about 3 valuable resources for unit administrators to help their new faculty when they arrive on campus:
1.)  University of Florida Office of Research: Compliance Form for an Investigator Transferring to UF
2.)  College of Medicine Research Administration and Compliance: Principal Investigator Transferring In – Tips and Guidance
3.)  Clinical Translational Science Institute (CTSI) Research Project Navigator, Tiffany Danielle Pineda, can advise research teams on available resources and help them navigate research-related processes. She serves as a central resource through which researcher inquiries and requests for assistance are managed and supported; information is available through personalized consultation and the CTSI portal. Please contact her for assistance at
Please let me know if you have any questions or need any assistance.

Proposals to the Division of Sponsored Programs
The Office of Research strongly recommends that proposals be submitted to the Division of Sponsored Programs (DSP) at least 2 business days prior to the sponsor’s published deadline.  This will provide DSP with sufficient time to secure all necessary internal approvals, and to identify any issues within the proposal materials that are inconsistent with the sponsor’s submission requirements that may result in the proposal being rejected by the sponsor without review. 
For proposals submitted to DSP less than 2 days prior to the sponsor’s published deadline, this office will do everything it can to submit the application ahead of the deadline. However, in these cases DSP may not have sufficient time for complete technical proposal review relative to submission requirements, thus increasing the chance of rejection due to technical deficiency. 
We are committed to serving the needs of the UF research community.  Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.
Please contact Stephanie Gray at 352-392-3516 or with any questions.
