If your NIH research award supports vertebrate animal research, your institution must send an annual report to NIH’s Office of Laboratory Animal Welfare (OLAW) by December 1, 2021.
Check what to include in your report and find a sample template at Annual Report to OLAW.
Traditionally, these annual reports covered calendar years—January 1 to December 31. However, the reports transitioned in 2020 to covering fiscal years. Your next annual vertebrate animal report should cover the 2021 fiscal year—October 1, 2020, to September 30, 2021—and your institutional official must send the signed report as a PDF over email to email@example.com by December 1, 2021.
For more information, read the June 17 Funding News article OLAW To Change Annual Reporting Period From Calendar Year to Fiscal Year.
