Procedure

NPARS has thirteen modules to help staff plan and process grant actions.

Before a grants management specialist awards a grant, the funding plan goes through the Process for Funding Plan Submission: from the division to the Grants Management Program (GMP) for policy issues, to NIAID's Budget and Financial Management Branch for budget approval, and to the NIAID Office of the Director for final approval. (The workflow is different for administrative supplements.)

For each level of approval, NPARS generates an email notifying the next group the application is ready for review. The system downloads noncompeting commitments, program assignment, and initial peer review information as soon as they are in the NIH IMPAC database.

Program Officers

  • Before Council, use the system to prepare materials for the NIAID director for selective pay, R56-Bridge, special issues, and MERIT nominations and to review applications that fall in the gray zone (scored but outside the payline).
  • If instructed to do so, generate an end-of-year request list of applications with percentiles beyond the payline.
  • Enter administrative supplement requests.
  • Check status for approval and funding at different stages of application and award.
