18. SNAP Administrative & Fiscal Requirements Has there been change in the other support of senior/key personnel since the last reporting period? Provide complete other support only if active support has changed for the PI and key personnel, or new senior/key personnel are added Will there be, in the next budget period, a significant change in the level of effort for the PD/PI or other personnel designated on the Notice of Grant Award from what was approved for this project? Describe any significant change (25% or greater reduction) in the level of effort of key personnel named in the Notice of Award Is it anticipated that an estimated unobligated balance (including prior year carryover) will be greater than 25% of the current year?s total budget? Explain why there is a balance, (including prior year carryovers), > 25% of the current year?s total budget and how you plan to use the funds

19. Non-SNAP Progress Reports -Administrative and Fiscal Requirements Submit complete non-competing continuation application (PHS 2590) Detailed budget, justification, and updated other support, IRB and IACUC if appropriate Address unobligated balance > 25% Total Costs as commitment base Annual Federal Financial Report (electronic submission)

20. Non-SNAP Progress Reports -Administrative and Fiscal Requirements (continued) Face Page Correct contact information Human Subjects/Animals FWAs/Assurances IRB/IACUC dates Education Certification for new personnel Budget Page AT COMMITTED LEVEL Written justification Updated Other Support Checklist page

21. How to submit SNAP Progress Report Electronically via eRA Commons, 45 days before next budget start date Commons-registered institutions and PIs: Have access to due date information through the Commons Status system (electronic submission for SNAP) Have access to pre-populated face pages via Status eRA Commons Website:

22. How to submit Non-SNAP Progress Report Hard copy to centralized mailing address, two months before next budget start date: Division of Extramural Activities Support, OER, NIH 6705 Rockledge Drive, Room 2207, MSC 7987 Bethesda, M.D. 20892-7987 Bethesda, M.D. 20817 (courier/express) Telephone: (301) 594-6584

23. What Not to Submit with the Non-Competing Progress Reports Carryover requests Requests for supplemental funding Requests for additional time to the final budget and project period These are administrative actions that need to be addressed separately.

24. What Can Delay the Award Process? (continued) Lack of or slow response to inquiries Info sent without identification?always include grant number Missing counter-signature of an authorized business official Budgets with inadequate justification Other Support for an individual that exceeds 100%

25. What Can Delay the Award Process? Missing information for Key Personnel Out-of-date IRB/IACUC approvals Lack of population data for clinical trials

26. Timeliness All grantees have access to a searchable list of due progress reports at: Two separate progress report reminders e-mailed to the PI Two months prior to the due date Two weeks after the due date for overdue reports

27. Federal Financial Report (including Financial Status Report info) The Office of Management and Budget has consolidated the Financial Status Report (FSR or SF-269/SF-269A) and the Federal Cash Transaction Report (FCTR or SF-272/SF-272A) into a single form known as the Federal Financial Report (FFR or SF-425/SF-425A)?

28. Federal Financial Report (including Financial Status Report info) (continued) Beginning 2/1/2011 NIH implemented the expenditure data portion (i.e., FSR info) of the FFR in the eRA Commons Annual FFR due 90 days after the end of calendar quarter in which the budget period ends Final FFRs due 90 days after the project period end FSR info under expenditure data of FFR. Only cumulative data reported on FFR (Federal CashTransaction Reporting completed in Payment Management System on the FFR using cash transaction data elements)

29. Federal Financial Report (including Financial Status Report info) (continued) Expenditure data and Cash Transaction data on the final FFR must reconcile MUST BE SUBMITTED BEFORE CARRYOVER REQUESTS ARE CONSIDERED Grant might not be processed if a prior year FFR has not been submitted to and accepted by NIH Grants Policy Statement, Financial Reports

30. Carryover/Offset ? What?s the Difference? One increases the approved budget and the other? Decreases the current fiscal year?s dollars by ?partially paying? the current year?s grant with funds from a prior year

31. Carryover/Offset FIRST: YOU MUST HAVE AN UNOBLIGATED BALANCE Unobligated Balance: Definition: Amount indicated on the Federal Financial Report (FFR) that represents funds the grantee institution was awarded but has not obligated (spent). The amount listed as ?unobligated funds? on the FFRshould include any funds that remain restricted from use in prior years/budget periods. This is a cumulative amount and should never decrease unless there has been a carryover or partial payment (offset).

32. Carryover Unobligated funds that are carried forward from one fiscal year or budget period to another. For grants not subject to automatic carryover, this action requires a written request from the grantee (countersigned by the institution?s authorized business official), including a detailed budget page and budget justification. The budget page should reflect both Direct costs and F&A costs. The approved budget is increased on the NoA allowing the grantee to spend funds carried forward from the previous fiscal year/budget period. The Total Federal Award Amount remains unchanged, (must reflect $0), since funds are carried forward from a previous fiscal year as opposed to adding funds, (new $$).

33. Carryover reflected on NoA ($50k TC carryover; original award of $250k TC)

34. Offset Unobligated funds used to ?partially pay? the current fiscal year budget period. When a grant is offset: The Approved Budget DOES NOT increase or decrease However, the Total Federal Award Amount DECREASES the current fiscal year?s dollars? indicating that the Approved Budget will be ?partially paid? with funds from a prior fiscal year.

35. Offset reflected on NoA ($50k TC offset; $250k TC approved)

36. Prior Approval Certain post-award actions require the prior approval of the NIH Grants Management Officer NIH Grants Policy Statement, 8.1.2 Prior Approval Requirements:

37. Prior Approval Examples of actions requiring NIH Prior Approval: No-Cost Extensions beyond first extension Change in status of PD/PI or Senior/Key Personnel or grantee organization status Change of grantee institution Pre-award costs more than 90 days (competing grant)

38. Prior Approval Examples (continued): Addition of a foreign component Carryover of unobligated balances Undertaking activities disapproved or restricted as a term of award Change in scope

The following items may indicate a change in scope: Change in aims Significant rebudgeting (deviation between categories of more than 25% of total awarded costs) Change in use of animals or humans Significant change in key personnel Shift in research emphasis Application of new technology Refer to NIH Grants Policy Statement for further information.

40. Prior Approval Change in status, including absence, of PD/PI and other Senior/Key Personnel named in NoA: Grantee must notify NIH if individual will: Reduce his/her time by more than 25% of effort level approved at time of award Withdraw from the project Be absent for 3 or more months
