UNH is currently collecting Personnel Activity Reports (PAR’s) for
FY10. Timely completion of the PAR’s is a UNH policy and a federal
requirement subject to audit and financial penalties. UNH policy requires return of signed FY10 PAR’s by October 1, 2010.
The National Science Foundation is planning to require that all
proposals include a data management plan in the form of a two-page
supplementary document. This requirement, announced at the May 5
National Science Board meeting, is explained in a May 10th NSF Press Release.
NIH, along with AHRQ and NIOSH, has announced it will eliminate the two-day error correction window
for Grants.gov proposals with due dates on or after January 25, 2011.
As a consequence of this change, there will no longer be the opportunity
to correct eRA Commons identified errors/warnings and resubmit a
Grants.gov application after the deadline. Applications that are not
successfully validated by Grants.gov and eRA Commons by 5 p.m.
