Administrative and Fiscal Management of Award

Once your grant is awarded, you may have questions about technical or financial aspects such as changing categories of funds, carrying forward unused balances from one year to the next, etc. These questions can be directed to your Grants Management Specialist listed in the Commons. The links below will also help you with the administration of your grant.

Before beginning your research, be sure to read the Award Conditions and Information for NIH Grants . Make sure you are aware of actions that may require prior notification and approval from NIH. Read the NIH Weekly Guide for Grants and Contracts  to keep on top of any policy changes that may affect your grant. You may also want to periodically check the NIMH Web site for the latest news and information.
