You may be able to get administrative supplement funds for your active grant or cooperative agreement for artificial intelligence and machine learning (AI/ML), AI/ML data readiness, or biomedical software development. The deadlines are coming soon, so act fast.

NIH’s Strategic Plan for Data Science aims to modernize the biomedical research data ecosystem and make data FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Reusable) with high impact for open science.

To align with the Strategic Plan, the NIH Office of Data Science Strategy (ODSS), NIAID, and many other NIH institutes and centers (ICs) support three new notices of special interest (NOSI):

Each NOSI has unique instructions, requirements, and other details, so we recommend giving them a close read. The following table compares a few key points:

NOSI Number NOT-OD-22-065 NOT-OD-22-067 NOT-OD-22-068

Before you start an application, check with the program officer for your parent grant to confirm eligibility. Small business activity codes (e.g., R41, R42, R43, R44, U44, and Fast Track), as well as G20, PS1, P60, R13, U13, U42, and UG1 are not eligible. NOT-OD-22-068 also disallows the S10 activity code. NIAID has set no further restrictions by activity code for these NOSIs. If you plan to apply to a different NIH IC, note that some other ICs may not support all the activity codes that would otherwise be allowed.

Apply through PA-20-272, Administrative Supplements to Existing NIH Grants and Cooperative Agreements (Parent Admin Supp, Clinical Trial Optional). For funding consideration, you must include your chosen NOSI’s notice number in the Agency Routing Identifier field (box 4B) of the SF 424 R&R Form.

Direct your NOSI-specific questions to the relevant email address above or find full contact information in the Inquiries section of each NOSI.
