The Office of Sponsored Projects serves as a central resource to support the research enterprise at Dartmouth by providing guidance and stewardship for the research community and the College.
The Office of the Provost is pleased to announce two internal seed funding programs to launch new scholarship, research, and creativity at Dartmouth. Faculty members in all departments and each of the professional schools are encouraged to apply for pilot funds and/or cross-disciplinary collaboration funds. Link to website
This document revises the Dartmouth policy and criteria for accepting clauses concerning publication restrictions in sponsored research agreements. In its role as an educational and research institution, Dartmouth seeks to contribute knowledge to the world. The results of its sponsored activities should, therefore, be accessible to the public and be disseminated on a non-discriminatory basis. The revised document explains the criteria for such language and replaces previous language described in the faculty handbook.
It's over! Stay tuned for updates concerning re-established deadlines.

Have you heard that NIH is finally going electronic on multi-project/complex grant applications? The new system is called ASSIST (Application Submission System & Interface for Submission Tracking). The system is available now and will be required for use for upcoming deadlines in accordance with the schedule on the NIH website. Paper applications will not be accepted. ASSIST does not use grants.gov forms or technology. Therefore, system to system submission will not be available in Rapport until our vendor works with the government to develop the upload capabilities. See NIH website for transition schedule to the new system.
Using ASSIST to Prepare and Submit Multi-Project Applications to NIH: Webinar - August 13, 2013
Please join OSP at 11 Rope Ferry Road to watch an important webinar on how to submit multi-project applications to NIH. The webinar will be broadcast by NIH Tuesday, August 13, 2013 (live broadcast) Time: 2:30-4:00 pm EST. For additional details, please review the NIH link.
Applications to FOAs with due dates on/after September 25, 2013 must use updated forms (FORMS-C). If you are using RAPPORT, the plan is for the system to automatically use the correct format. Please review NIH updates on the new forms. Also, see guidance from NIAID in their article, You Should "C" Which SF 424 Forms to Use.
As described in recent OSP sessions, research performance progress reports for NIH non-competing applications (SNAP) and Fellowships must be submitted using the new on-line system, RPPR. The RPPR is available on the NIH Commons. Caution: the system will allow you to start an eSNAP using the old system. However, submission is not possible using the old system. If you start a non-competing in eSNAP, you will need to contact the NIH help desk and request that the report be deleted and you will need to start over in RPPR. Also, non-competing applications are currently being delayed by NIH if publications are not compliant with NIH public access rules and reporting in My NCBI; For additional information, please review OSP slides from presentation on the OSP Faculty resource page
The OSP website now includes information concerning how to address security requirements for certain proposals. The new page provides high level information concerning funding opportunity or award terms that might entail additional measures to protect data. Certain funding announcements may include complex terms or references to regulations such as Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA), NIST 800-53, Investigators should review these terms carefully since there may be costs and time involved in implementing the needed compliance infrastructure.
Based on recently issued FAQs from NIH, Dartmouth College has revised its policy regarding Travel Disclosures required of PHS-funded investigators. Read more.

Grant Determination Guidance posted on OSP website.
In early 2012, NSF will transition all progress reporting from Fastlane to Research.gov. For additional information, please monitor OSP communications or review the Brochure on NSF Progress Reporting.
New funding opportunities are continuously updated on the OSP Blog. Dartmouth also subscribes to PIVOT, a comprehensive database of funding opportunities with profile and automatic notice capabilities. Also, don't forget to monitor the Limited Opportunities posted on the OSP website for new announcements for a variety of awards.
