The National Institutes of Health (NIH) issued notice NOT-OD-19-114 on July 10, 2019 as well as FAQ that are intermittently updated, reminding research institutions that NIH-funded researchers must “report foreign activities through documentation of other support, foreign components, and financial conflict of interest to prevent scientific, budgetary, or commitment overlap.”
Please take your time to review the notice and the FAQ in their entirety to ensure compliance in your NIH submissions. Of particular interest in the above resources, the NIH clarified the definitions of “Other Support” and “Foreign Component,” as well as the information that should be included in a Biosketch.
Researchers and research administrators should discuss any questions regarding disclosure requirements with their ORPA representative.
