DEA Renewals

Federal Regulations governing DEA registration provide an exemption from registrations fees ($390) for any individual practitioner who is required to obtain an individual registration in order to carry out his or her duties an as official of any state agency. The practitioners at the University of Florida qualify for this exemption.

When renewing your DEA registration using Form 224A online, question #7 asks for Certification for Fee Exemption. The form also asks for the name of the “Certifying Officer”. This would be your department chair.

Please note, that this is an exemption from paying registration fees. You are still required to register and to comply with any other requirements or duties prescribed by law.

Projects must be completed within 18 months from notice of award. Applications are due May 31, 2016. It is anticipated that up to 5 awards will be made, depending on quality of submissions and budget availability.


The PRICE-CTSI-IOA pilot grants are being offered to support the growth of patient-oriented clinical research on the topic of pain and aging across UF’s broad range of scientific disciplines. It is expected that all research supported by this RFA will provide critical preliminary data to support extramural applications.
