NOTICE:  NOT-AI-02-032

National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID)

Effective Date of New Monitoring Policy: October 1, 2002

Notice AI-00-003 in the February 25, 2000 NIH Guide announced the 
availability of "NIAID POLICY ON MONITORING GRANTS SUPPORTING CLINICAL TRIALS 
AND STUDIES" (http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/notice-files/NOT-AI-00-003.html).
Standard NIAID Terms and Conditions of Award for clinical studies 
and trials were promulgated. These terms and conditions of award will remain 
in effect until September 30, 2002 will be found at: 
http://www.niaid.nih.gov/ncn/pdf/clintermfy2002.pdf

Since that time, there have been many changes in policy concerning the 
appropriate conduct of clinical research. 

As a result, NIAID is updating its policy and announcing the availability of 
updated "Clinical Terms of Award" that will become effective on October 1, 
2002. Awardees will be required to comply with these updated Clinical Terms 
of Award. The terms will be incorporated in their Notices of Grant Award or 
contracts.  These terms require that all clinical trials and studies 
supported by NIAID be monitored commensurate with the degree of potential 
risk to study subjects and complexity of the study.

The details of the new policy can be found at the following location:
http://www.niaid.nih.gov/ncn/pdf/clinterm.pdf. Guidance information 
concerning the new policy will be available at:
