Training Grant Administrators (TGA) Group Stephanie Scott Communications and Outreach Director SPA April 9 th, 2013
Agenda Review the Active Training Grant List ▫Who is submitting on May 25, 2013 ? ▫Deadlines differ by IC NIH Updates Review of NIH Public Access Policy specific to training grants Guest Speakers – SPF and Nursing ▫ Termination Notices
T32 Competitive Deadlines – a review Review current Parent Announcement (PA-11-184) carefully, in particular, the “Related Notices” section: ▫http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/pa-files/PA-11-184.htmlhttp://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/pa-files/PA-11-184.html ▫Ex., various ICs may decide to stop accepting new T32s MUST review the table of IC Specific-Information ▫http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/contacts/parent_T32.htmlhttp://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/contacts/parent_T32.html ▫Ex., NHLBI only accepts new and competing applications once a year, on January 25th The tables are not to be created equally for each IC ▫Each IC has their own set of table requirements
General NIH Update As of today, still no word on NRSA stipend levels for FY13. Continue to use NOT-OD-12-033 Same with the NIH Salary Cap, still must charge at $179,700 (can use $180,600 for proposals until further notice)
Public Access Policy and T32s The enhanced NIH Public Access Policy takes effect with budget period start dates of 7/1/2013 or later. NIH will delay NGA of non-competing year if publications resulting from the T32 are not compliant. Watch the due date of your progress report! Each IC sets their own rules for T32s. Not consistent. RPPR not available for T32s. Must use paper PHS 2590 forms, and attach PDF report from MyNCBI to demonstrate compliance with the Public Access Policy.
Special Session on MyNCBI for this group! Monday, April 22 nd 3:30 pm – 5: 00 pm Hammer Health Sciences, LL203 Learn how to use MyNCBI to manage all the citations resulting from an institutional training grant. Faculty, delegates, administrators, and anyone else given this responsibility are invited to attend.
FAQ - Which citations are applicable to the policy on a T32? Every paper that the PI, trainee, or mentor claims resulted from the T32 needs to be in PubMed Central with a PMCID#. If the trainee worked on a publication while they were appointed on the T32, then the T32 supported the paper, and therefore, needs a PMCID#, even if the paper was published after the appointment. If the paper was accepted for publication PRIOR to being appointed on the T32, then the paper was not directly supported by the T32, and therefore, does not need to be in PubMed Central. It also wouldn’t be reported on the progress report.
Trainees can help Trainees with Commons linked My NCBI accounts can also link the T32 to their papers themselves, helping the PI make these determinations. NIH provided information about that process at http://www.nlm.nih.gov/pubs/techbull/ja12/ja1 2_myncbi_new_features.html. http://www.nlm.nih.gov/pubs/techbull/ja12/ja1 2_myncbi_new_features.html
What about Tables 6A & 6B for new and renewal applications? The compliance of publications is not considered as part of the scientific review. However, must address compliance if funded or NIH may delay issuing the NGA. Could be addressed during JIT. Use MyNCBI to pull past trainee publications for the tables. Easier than using Google!
