This standard operating procedure (SOP) includes the following sections: Purpose, Procedure, Contacts, and Links.
To enable NIAID staff to monitor the status of competing and noncompeting grant applications before award using the NIAID Planning and Reporting System (NPARS).
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.
