1 Office of Sponsored Programs VANDERBILT UNIVERSITY The Office of Sponsored Programs has upgraded COEUS to accommodate the new Grants.gov C-Forms About this change….. The purpose of this notice is to provide guidance and information for applicants that NIH is transitioning to the updated electronic application forms packages. The new packages will be identified with a Competition ID of FORMS-C. As always, please continue to provide feedback. Coeus is a tool for all of us and your input is very much appreciated.

2 Office of Sponsored Programs VANDERBILT UNIVERSITY Contents Why the change? When will this happen? Locating Appropriate Grants.gov Package Forms changing: updated, new, and retired forms New SF424 (R&R) Cover Page and COEUS New detailed budget justification narrative type Change to Smart Questionnaire in COEUS New questionnaires for Planned Enrollment and Cumulative Inclusion human subject data tables Changes to data limits (key persons, sites, trainees, equipment, etc) If you have already started a proposal, COEUS Help personnel will be contacting you directly with specific instructions.

3 Office of Sponsored Programs VANDERBILT UNIVERSITY With the overall goal of reducing the number of forms, Grants.gov continues to work with Federal agencies to retire forms that are no longer in use and improve forms that continue to be used.

Proposals due on/after September 25, 2013 (with the exceptions noted previously) must use the FORMS-C Package associated with the FOA. It is important to select your Grants.gov opportunity number and include the appropriate forms before working on other parts of your proposal in COEUS.
