Effective September 1, 2000, grants not submitted in compliance with the modular grant application requirements may be rejected and not reviewed. All R01, R03, R15, R21, R41, R43, and RFA applications requesting $250,000 or less for direct costs for each budget year must be submitted in modular format.
Some RFAs may also specify use of this format for awards with direct cost budgets larger than $250,000 per year; check the RFA to determine if this applies.
NIH will consider an application NON-COMPLIANT if:
The requested direct costs budget is not requested in modules of $25,000 up to the ceiling amount of $250,000 direct cost per year.
A detailed itemized categorical budget is provided (form DD or EE)
The Budget Narrative Justification page includes an itemized justification for one or more of the following: equipment, supplies, travel, other expenses, etc. but the information is not intended to explain the request for a different number of modules in one or more years.
Other support pages are supplied in addition to or in the absence of the section in the Biographical Sketch identifying "Research Projects Ongoing or Completed During the last Three Years."
The Biographical Sketch lists "Current and Pending Support" instead of or in addition to the required information.
