This SOP has internal roles only.
This standard operating procedure (SOP) includes the following sections: Purpose, Procedure, Contacts, and Links.
To request that the Center for Scientific Review (CSR) conduct initial peer review of applications typically reviewed by NIAID or to request that NIAID review applications usually reviewed by CSR.
While CSR reviews most NIH single-project research applications and individual fellowships, NIAID sometimes asks CSR to review applications normally reviewed by the Institute, e.g., applications responding to a request for applications (RFA). Sometimes CSR asks NIAID to review applications that CSR typically handles.
To request that CSR review some of NIAID's applications, send the information below to the Receipt and Referral group at Contact for NIAID Staff as soon as an initiative is approved. That group will forward the request to CSR.
CSR discourages receipt dates in April, August, or December due to standing expedited review submission dates for SBIR, STTR, fellowships, and AIDS applications.
CSR will send NIAID its decision one to two weeks after the deadline for receiving requests (see chart below).
CSR Review Request Deadlines for RFAs
September or October
*Later request allowed for initiatives from appropriation language.
If CSR asks NIAID to review applications, CSR Contact sends the information listed above to Contact for NIAID Staff, who lets CSR know whether NIAID can accommodate their request.
