Review

Administrative supplement applications will undergo a program, budget, and grants management review within NIH that will potentially include external reviewers from other U.S. Government (USG) agencies. The supplement applications will be evaluated on their:

1. Significance – Evidence that the supplement funding will support priority areas identified in this request and demonstration of significant collaboration between NIH-funded researchers and/or other USG in-country health activities e.g., Global Health Initiative (GHI).

2. Innovation – The identification of an implementation-oriented research priority that addresses a significant question or gap in research evidence targeting women and girls health and/or the role of women in the improvement of health; and the degree to which the proposed approach aims to maximize the synergy between the unique resources supported by the parent grant and the collaboration with other USG in-country activities.

3. Investigator – Choice of appropriate scientists having the appropriate scientific qualifications, commitment, experience, and the degree to which the qualifications, experience, and level of effort of the investigators are complementary and likely to result in an investigation that neither could accomplish independently. Expertise of the research team proposed to conduct and achieve the goals of the proposal.

4. Environment – The likelihood that the proposed project will achieve the stated goals, and evidence that the scientific expertise, and training/mentoring track record, facilities and administrative support needed for the collaboration to succeed are present.

5. Other - Adequate progress of the parent grant appropriate to the current stage of the project. Appropriate and well described plan to accomplish the goals within the timeframe proposed.
