Research News

From the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs - Serving the Research Community of Wright State University

Winter 1997 Vol. 28, No. 2


Sponsor Alerts

No Numbers, Please

Effective October 1, 1996, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) has implemented new procedures for the inclusion of the PI Social Security Number (SSN) on competing (PHS 398) and non-competing (PHS 2590) applications. The PI SSN should NOT be included on the face page of the application nor provided elsewhere in the application. The PI SSN should ONLY be provided (along with the applicant's name) at the top of the Personal Data form (PHS Form 398, page KK). For competing renewals using the PHS 398 packet, the PI should NOT complete or submit the Personnel Report (page JJ). It will be requested, if necessary, at the time of award.

For non-competing applications using the PHS 2590 kit, provide the PI SSN on the Personnel Report form (page G) and submit one copy with the original application only.

As NIH moves forward with its implementation of Electronic Research Administration, it seeks to protect private information; thus, the limitations of the use of the PI SSN on the application forms.

Little Things That Mean a Lot

Sponsors are  serious when they instruct applicants to follow specific guidelines for margins, font size and page limits when submitting proposals. Read the sponsor guidelines carefully and follow instructions to the letter. It could mean the difference between success and resubmission!

In the Meantime . . .

The National Institutes of Health has been tossing around ideas for supporting productive laboratories who may experience a lapse in grant support from the NIH. The National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS) has taken action and announced a new policy for interim funding beginning October 1996. Those who qualify are the 55 to 65 percent of NIGMS grantees whose unamended competing continuation R01 applications are within 10 percentile points beyond the funding range. NIGMS has set aside approximately $3.5 million to provide interim funding to eligible applicants in FY 97.

While it may seem too good to be true, there are a number of details inherent in the new policy. If you have any questions, please contact RSP.

And Now a Few Words From Another Sponsor

Effective January 1, 1997, the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) will restrict K05 (Senior Scientist Award) awards to one, five year term and only to investigators who are NIMH grantees at the time of the award. Competing K05 renewal applications will not be accepted by the NIMH after January 1, 1997.

In addition, NIMH now no longer accepts new or revised applications for support by way of the K07 (Academic Career Award) mechanism.

To Boldly Go . . .

You knew this was coming! The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases is experimenting with electronic features to speed the movement of funding requests from start to finish in as little as five months, instead of eight to ten. They'll save time by asking applicants to "self refer" their proposals to a review group, which will have access to their fellow reviewers' comments electronically on a secure WWW-based system.

NIAID expects to have some results from these streamlining efforts by summer's end. Stay tuned at: http://www.niaid.nih.gov

Update on STTR and SBIR Solicitations

The Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Program and the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Program are alive and well. The FY 1997 Schedule of Solicitations for each program has been published by the agencies involved.

Look for the deadlines to be announced in upcoming issues of Funding Update  or contact RSP to have a full listing sent to you.

You Can't Win 'em All

Contrary to our heads-up reporting in the Fall 1996 issue of Research News, the deadline for the receipt of applications for the Shared Instrumentation Grant (SIG) Program through the National Center for Research Resources is March 26, 1997. The official announcement may be found in the December 20, 1996, issue of the NIH Guide.

A Kinder, Gentler NIH

Federal Express may not approve, but the National Institutes of Health (NIH) has changed its policy with respect to the "receipt dates" of certain of its applications. Aware that many applicants felt compelled to use expensive express shipping services to get applications to NIH by the receipt date, it has adopted a policy intended to simplify the process and minimize the costs associated with application submission. The policy change became effective January 2, 1997:

    An unsolicited application will be considered on time if it is received by or mailed on or before the published receipt date and a proof of mailing is provided. Proof of timely mailing requires a legibly dated U.S. Postal Service postmark or a dated receipt from a commercial carrier or the U.S. Postal Service. Private metered postmarks are not acceptable.

Solicited applications and proposals (Request for Applications [RFAs] and Program Announcements [PAs]) continue under the previous policy; that is, receipt date is required. However, NIH has indicated that an application in this category received after the deadline may be acceptable if it carries a legible proof-of-mailing date assigned by the carrier and this proof is not later than one week prior to the deadline date.

Non-competing applications fall under the new policy, although grantees are reminded that non-competing applications should be received in time for "orderly processing" of non-competing awards.

The moral of the story is, will 24 extra hours really make that much difference? RSP will work with faculty to ensure the maximum confidence level for all!


Notes from the Director

Sole Source Justification - You're Not Alone

Office of Management and Budget Circular No. A-110, which contains regulations governing how universities manage federal assistance awards, requires that:

"All procurement transactions shall be conducted in a manner to provide, to the maximum extent practical, open and free competition."

Formal bidding procedures are required for procurements over $100,000 per year. Auditors at other universities have determined that subagreements for research (e.g., when one school gets a grant and subcontracts part of it out to another school) are a kind of "procurement" and as such should be competitively bid unless a "sole source" can be justified. This is bureaucratic-ese that says, in plain English, whenever we propose to enter into a subagreement with another institution to have that institution do some of the work, and the total value of that subagreement is over $100,000 annually, we need to have a piece of paper in the file that explains why we chose to do business with that institution.

Consequently, RSP has devised a relatively simple document that Principal Investigators will be asked to sign whenever their proposal involves the subcontracting out of part of the work and the annual amount of the subagreement is over $100,000. The document will be called a "Sole Source Justification" and will state that:

  • This selection was based on the unique set of staff, skills, and facilities provided by the subcontractor.
  • The Principal Investigator has determined that, to the best of his/her knowledge and belief, no other organization/institution offers comparable capabilities.
  • Therefore, it is in the best interests of Wright State University and the prime sponsor to waive their requirements of the competitive bidding process and to select this organization/institution as its subcontractor.

We believe this will meet the requirements of A-110 and at the same time be a minimal paperwork burden on WSU investigators.

Faculty Workshops . . . RSP Delivers

The RSP Faculty Orientation Workshops held in October were well attended, and we hope the participants left with more answers than questions!

Should your department, school or unit be interested in a more focused training session for your faculty/staff, RSP would be happy to oblige. Call Bill Sellers at ext. 2425 to explain your needs and schedule a workshop.

Let Us Make the Deal!

The RSP professional staff is authorized to negotiate the terms of an award with a potential sponsor. Before you are tempted to sign on the dotted line, please contact RSP to handle the negotiation of the budget (including indirect costs), publication rights, indemnifications, and other terms and conditions.

What's in a Name?

Grant or contract? Oftentimes these words are used interchangeably by Principal Investigators, but the differences are very real. Most notably, a "grant" is an agreement to support research ideas that have been defined by the applicant/PI. A "contract" is an instrument to procure research which has been defined by the funding agency.

Even more basic: a "grant" is the PI's idea and sponsor's money; a "contract" is the sponsor's idea and the sponsor's money. In either case, the PI does the work!

MetroParks Plants a Seed

In October, Dr. Jay Thomas, Dean of Graduate Studies, and Dr. William Sellers, Director, Research and Sponsored Programs, had the pleasure of hosting a luncheon attended by a small core of WSU faculty and the staff of the Five Rivers MetroParks. The purpose was to begin discussion of collaborative efforts between the two organizations. Faculty were treated to a tour of selected MetroParks' sites and encouraged to brainstorm ideas for joint projects.

Formerly known as the "Park District of Dayton-Montgomery County," the current name of the agency, Five Rivers MetroParks, was adopted in 1995 to clarify confusion about who manages the agency and to stress the new commitment to river corridor conservation, recreation and education.

MetroParks staff is enthusiastic about involving WSU faculty in ongoing projects using the public facilities operated by the MetroParks system.

Potential opportunities are available for:

  • Environmental studies/ecology (prairie land restoration)
  • Archaeology/anthropology (old canal site)
  • Rehabilitation medicine (horseback therapy)
  • Geology/glacier effects
  • Waste management
  • Water quality analysis
  • Civil engineering/erosion

Contact Bill Sellers or Ellen Reinsch Friese at ext. 2425 if you would like to discuss further the MetroParks opportunities.


Post-Award NEWS

FAS Training

Financial Accounting System (FAS) training is being offered through the Department of Internal Audit. These sessions are popular and fill up quickly so be sure to call ahead and reserve a seat in advance. Handy reference materials are distributed to assist users in interpreting their monthly reports. RSP staff has attended both the FAS and Internal Control sessions and recommends them highly to anyone involved in grants or contracts.

A session is being developed for restricted (grants and contract) accounts. The only requirement to attend this workshop is that the participant has previously completed the general FAS training. Future training is also being developed to train employees in the purchasing process.

Please call Teresa Timm at ext. 3512 to make reservations or for more information.

Tips for Managing Grant and Contract Funds

  • Attend FAS training;
  • Know sponsor's restrictions;
  • Understand WSU's policies and procedures;
  • Review FAS printouts monthly;
  • To avoid delays in expenditure processing, use the appropriate form for your transaction; and
  • Communicate changes in your budget, performance period, etc., with RSP staff and your sponsor

Leavin' on a Jet Plane? Don't Forget your Ticket

Note: The new airline ticket delivery policy went into effect in December 1996. Please remember that RSP must still approve all travel authorization forms prior to the travel taking place. As a result of this new policy, travel authorization forms may need to be hand carried to RSP for approval in order that the authorization form is approved and available when the ticket is delivered. If time permits, send the travel authorization, via campus mail, to RSP. Once approved, the form will be sent back to your department. RSP cannot accept delivery of airline tickets.
