This standard operating procedure (SOP) includes the following sections: Purpose, Procedure, Contacts, and Links.
To enable institutes and centers (IC) that share research areas to cosponsor funding opportunity announcements (FOAs).
ICs often cosponsor FOAs using the following methods:
In some cases, cosponsorship is determined before an IC enters a draft FOA into the NIH Guide Publishing System (NIHGPS).
If an IC wants to cosponsor a FOA, it can negotiate a revision with the sponsoring IC. Refer to Section VII. Agency Contacts within the FOA for the IC contact.
If an IC wants to sign on after a FOA is published in the Guide or after a FOA has moved into Status 4 in the NIHGPS, it must issue a notice of participation in the NIHGPS.
Each IC has an internal process for determining whether it will cosponsor a FOA and how much money it will contribute. At NIAID, the Executive Committee must review and approve all proposed cosponsorships.
After peer review, participating organizations determine which applications to fund, how they will be funded, and who will fund which applications. To make changes to an application's assignment, see the NIAID Request for Assignment Changes From CSR SOP.
