The National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) have issued a notice, clarifying their resubmission policy.
NIH has summarized the updates as follows:
- Only a single resubmission (A1) of an original application (A0) will be accepted
- An A0 application may be submitted following an unsuccessful A0 or A1 application, with a few exceptions
- What happens when switching FOAs between the A0 and A1 applications
- Generally a change of activity code (e.g., R01) between the A0 and A1 is not allowed, with one exception
