Can I request a NCE on my NIH ARRA award?
Yes, the same NIH policies apply to ARRA awards as to non-ARRA awards.
Can I request a NCE on my NIH ARRA award that is a supplement ?
Yes, but the NCE end date of the supplement must still be on or before the end date of the parent award.
(see the NIH NCE Decision Tree for help about what actions need to be taken in different situations)
LBNL is a subcontract to a university for an ARRA award. Am I still restricted from paying LDRD even if we are a subcontract ?
Yes, if we are an ARRA award either primary, secondary, or tertiary we are restricted from paying LDRD. The same applies to FAC.
I know we received the Notice of Award for ARRA. When can I enter the information in the ARRA Header ?
The ARRA Header can be updated after the award is generated in RAPID by the OSPIP CO.
Why are there weird characters in the abstract in the ARRA Header?
How do I fix the weird characters?
If the weird characters are in the Description of Project Activity, contact the OSPIP CO for correction in RAPID
If the weird characters are inn Quarterly Activities, make the correction directly in the ARRA Header
What is the current process for new ARRA awards?
The process has evolved since the first awards arrived last fall. In many places the process has been streamlined. (see OSPIP website under procedures)
