This SOP has internal roles only.
To give NIH institutes and centers (ICs) the opportunity to comment on NIH request for applications (RFAs) or program announcements (PAs) before they are published.
NIH's ENS & HHS Forecast in the NIH Guide Publishing System lets ICs comment on NIH RFAs or PAs to see if they wish to co-sponsor an initiative or identify overlap issues with another initiative. See Co-Sponsorship of RFAs and PAs by Other ICs SOP.
When an initiative is posted, ICs have 14 days to respond. An IC may place a hold on the initiative, which extends the comment period by 14 days to resolve issues.
After that time, NIH publishes an initiative without the participation of any IC that still has unresolved issues.
