Successor-in-Interest (Type 6 Parent)
The National Institutes of Health (NIH) hereby notify grantee organizations holding specific types of NIH research grants, listed in the full Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA), that applications for change of grantee organization status, often referred to in this announcement as Successor-In-Interest, may be submitted in response to this FOA. Applications for change of grantee organization status are considered prior approval requests (as described in Section 18.104.22.168 of the NIH Grants Policy Statement) and will be routed for consideration directly to the Grants Management Specialist named in the current award.
Although successor-in-interest requests may be submitted through this FOA, there is no guarantee that an award will be transferred to the new organization. All applicants are encouraged to discuss potential requests with the awarding IC before submission.
Funding Opportunity Details
A successor-in-interest request must be made before the anticipated start date at the new organization and preferably several months in advance.
