- Agreement Negotiation & Signature
- Award Management
While each award and solicitation leading to award should be reviewed for unique project conditions, the following is the baseline conditions for NIH direct research grant award terms and conditions.
All federal sponsored awards and many non-governmental sponsors and University policy are based on 2 CFR 200, otherwise known as Uniform Guidance or the UG. NIH implements the Uniform Guidance through their Grants Policy Statement (NIH GPS). In addition, NIH is a member of the Federal Demonstration Partnership and allows certain flexibilities for research grants called the Research Terms and Conditions. Your award will specifically identify if it falls under the Research Terms and Conditions. These conditions provide additional flexibility to UF. The Prior Approval Matrix is a handy guide to what flexibilities are offered under these awards.
If the award has no additional conditions outlined in your solicitation or in the special terms and conditions of your award, the following terms apply to your NIH grant. Any items listed as requiring prior approval should be routed through UFIRST awards to DSP for review and submission to NIH.
