NIH Announces Upcoming Changes to the Notice of Award (NoA) Effective Oct. 1, 2020.

NIH has notifed the extramural community of upcoming changes to the format of the National Institutes of Health’s (NIH) Notice of Award (NoA). As outlined in the NIH Grants Policy Statement (GPS), Section 5, the NoA is the legal document issued to notify the recipient that an award has been made and that funds may be requested from the designated HHS payment system or office.

The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has developed a standardized Page One of the NoA and, effective October 1, 2020, this will serve as the first page of every HHS NoA for all discretionary awards.  For additional details, please see NOT-OD-20-155.
