- Purpose: The Office of AIDS Research, in collaboration with the NIH Institutes and Centers (ICs) named above, encourages applications for administrative supplements to fund innovative research on HIV and aging through clinical, translational, observational, or interventional studies in domestic or international settings. The specific types of NIH awards that can be supplemented are listed above. Supplemental projects must be within the scope of the parent grant. Topics of interest include HIV infection, HIV-associated conditions, HIV treatment, and/or biobehavioral or social factors associated with HIV/AIDS in the context of aging and/or in older adults.
- Eligible Organizations: All organizations administering an eligible parent award may apply for a supplement under this announcement.
- Eligible Individuals: Individual(s) must hold an active grant or cooperative agreement, and the research proposed in the supplement must be accomplished within the competitive segment of the active award. Individuals are encouraged to work with their organizations to develop applications for support.
- For supplements to parent awards that include multiple PDs/PIs, the supplement may be requested by any or all of the PDs/PIs (in accordance with the existing leadership plan) and submitted by the awardee institution of the parent award. Do not use this administrative supplement application to add, delete, or change the PDs/PIs listed on the parent award. Visit the Multiple Program Director/Principal Investigator Policy in the SF424 (R&R) Application Guide for more information.
- Number of Applications: Applicant organizations may submit more than one application, provided that each is sufficiently distinct from any other administrative supplement currently under consideration by the awarding NIH Institute or Center.
- Letter of Intent: N/A
- Application Receipt Date(s): May 15, 2015
- Award Amount: Application budgets are limited to no more than $100,000 in direct costs, and must reflect the actual needs of the proposed project.
- The funding mechanism being used to support this program, administrative supplements, can be used to cover cost increases that are associated with achieving certain new research objectives, as long as the research objectives are within the original scope of the peer reviewed and approved project, or the cost increases are for unanticipated expenses within the original scope of the project. Any cost increases need to result from making modifications to the project that would increase or preserve the overall impact of the project consistent with its originally approved objectives and purposes.
- Project Period: The project and budget periods must be within the currently approved project period for the existing parent award and may not exceed one year in duration.
