GRANTS MANAGEMENT - Performance Sites
Supporting our researchers' projects from concept to close-out.
"Performance Sites" information is a required item, but is NOT a separate attachment.
Provide the information below to the Grants Specialist for each Performance Site.
Subaward/Consortium sites: If the site is a subawardee (i.e. a non-Legacy site with a paid role on the project) then all the information can be gathered using the LRI Subrecipient Statement Of Intent form
NIH Application Guide - Performance Sites
Generally, the primary location should be that of the applicant organization or identified as off-site in accordance with the conditions of the applicant organization's negotiated Facilities and Administrative (F&A) agreement. This information must agree with the F&A information on the budget form of the application.
For additional and external sites the following information is needed:
- Organization Name
- DUNS Number
- ZIP/Postal Code (ZIP+4 is required)
- Project/Performance Site Congressional District: Provide the Congressional District as a 2-character state abbreviation, a hyphen, and a 3-character district number. Examples: CA-005 for California's 5th district, VA-008 for Virginia's 8th district. If the program/project is outside the United States, use 00-000.
If the proposed project involves human subjects or live vertebrate animals, it is up to the applicant organization to ensure that all sites meet certain criteria:
- Human Subjects: If a project/performance site is engaged in research involving human subjects, the applicant organization is responsible for ensuring that the project/performance site operates under an appropriate Federal Wide Assurance for the protection of human subjects and complies with 45 CFR 46 and other NIH human subject related policies described in the NIH Grants Policy Statement, Section 4.1.15: Human Subjects Protections.
- Vertebrate Animals: For research involving live vertebrate animals, the applicant organization must ensure that all project/performance sites hold an Office of Laboratory Animal Welfare (OLAW)-approved Animal Welfare Assurance.
If the animal work will be conducted at an institution with an Animal Welfare Assurance and the applicant organization does not have the following:
an animal care and use program; facilities to house animals and conduct research on site; and an IACUC; then applicant must obtain an Inter-institutional Assurance from OLAW prior to an award.
