The National Institutes of Health (NIH) has implemented a new requirement
for collecting certifications and retaining signatures of individual fellows
and their sponsor(s) for the Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research Service
Awards (NRSA). These certifications must be collected and maintained, as
part of UCR's institutional review and approval processes, for all competing
applications (PHS 416-1), progress reports for continuation support (PHS
416-9), and with each prior approval request made of NIH.
To comply with this newest NIH requirement, Sponsored Programs
Administration (SPA) has developed a new form, the "NIH/PHS Fellowship
Certification Assurance Form," which is available via the Forms
<http://or.ucr.edu/home/Forms.aspx> link on the Office of Research Website
or directly at
surance%20Form.pdf. This form should be submitted to SPA as follows:
. For NRSA competing applications (PHS 416-1) - the completed and
signed form should be uploaded and attached to the eCAF for the grant
. For NRSA progress reports for continuation support (PHS 416-9) - the
completed and signed form should be provided to SPA along with the PHS 416-9
. For prior approval requests made to NIH - the completed and signed
form should be sent to SPA along with the prior approval request.
Because NIH prior approval requests and NRSA progress reports for
continuation support (PHS 416-9) are generally submitted to SPA via e-mail,
attaching the completed and signed NIH/PHS Fellowship Certification
Assurance Form to the e-mail is acceptable and preferred.
The requirement for collecting and retaining certifications is effective
immediately. Please see NIH notice NOT-OD-09-007
