In December, NIH published a revised Grants Policy Statement (GPS) for fiscal year 2023. The NIH GPS provides up-to-date policy instruction that serves as the standard terms and conditions of award for NIH grants, as well as guidance for applicants pursuing an NIH grant.
The revised GPS is applicable to all NIH grants and cooperative agreements with budget periods that began on or after October 1, 2022. This update supersedes the NIH GPS dated December 2021. Previous versions of the NIH GPS remain applicable as standard terms and conditions of award for all NIH grants and cooperative agreements with budget periods that began before October 1, 2022.
Refer to Summary of Significant Changes to the NIH GPS for December 2022 Version for a list of new and modified requirements, policy clarifications, and legal regulations. For example, NIH added definitions for the Data Management and Sharing (DMS) Plan and updated the Genomic Data Sharing (GDS) section to reflect changes in the DMS and GDS Policies. Further, NIH revised the SAM Registration and Unique Entity Identifier Requirements section and removed language related to DUNS number since it is no longer used.
NIH will continue to publish interim policy changes and regularly announces interim grants policy changes by issuing notices in the NIH Guide. We will cover those changes as they happen in this newsletter.
