UNCG Sponsored Programs

Facilitating Research, Scholarship & Creative Activity

After submission and before an award is issued, sponsors often ask for additional proposal related materials. Requested materials can include IRB/IACUC certifications, updated current & pending support documents and revised budgets. If you receive communication from your Program Officer requesting additional materials, please contact your Grants Specialist.

NIH Just-In-Time Requests – A Just-in-Time Request for information is normally sent to PIs who have applied for NIH funding and are in the late-stages of the review process. Information usually requested includes: updated Other Support documents, IRB and IACUC certifications, and often, revised budgets.

Post-Submission Budget Revisions – Often a sponsor will recommend funding but at a reduced level. In this instance, before an award can be issued, a revised budget must be submitted to the sponsor. Please work with your Specialist in the Office of Contracts and Grants to develop your revised budget.

NIH Post-Submission Application Materials  – NIH offer PIs who have recently submitted proposals the opportunity to provide post-submission materials in support of their applications. These materials are restricted to:

1. News of promotions and positive tenure decisions.
2. News of promotions and professional achievements for trainees and faculty members on training grant applications.
3. Revised budget page(s) (e.g., change in budget request due to new funding or institutional acquisition of equipment).
4. Biographical sketches (e.g., change in senior/key personnel due to the hiring, replacement, or loss of an investigator).
5. Letters of support or collaboration resulting from a change in senior/key personnel due to the hiring, replacement, or loss of an investigator.
6. Adjustments resulting from natural disasters (e.g., loss of an animal colony).
7. Adjustments resulting from change of institution (e.g., PD/PI moves to another university).
8. News of an article accepted for publication (a copy of the article should not be sent).
