Please be aware of the following information regarding Project Call 1.0:

  • The federal government shutdown does not affect the timeline for the NIIMBL project call. The due date for Project Call 1.0 proposals is this Friday, January 26, 2018 at 5:00 pm EST.

  • Exempt Human Subjects Research: The Department of Commerce, along with 15 other federal agencies, have announced an Interim Final Rule (IFR) that delays by six months the effective date and general compliance date of the revisions to the Common Rule that were scheduled to go into effect on January 19, 2018. In accordance with Section 3.2 of Project Call 1.0 RFP, NIIMBL expected to issue updated guidance in the event that these revisions went into effect. Due to the delay in the revisions, no changes to the RFP and guidance documents will be issued. For more information about the IFR, please see the following: Interim Final Rule.
