JHU SOM Office of Research Administration
In accordance with University guidance, all areas of the School of Medicine Office of Research Administration will begin working remotely as of Monday, March 16th. Otherwise, all operations will continue as normal. Please continue to work with your regular ORA contacts as normal and continue to submit proposals, sponsored awards or other requests to ORA through the normal channels. We will provide all current available guidance from federal agencies/sponsors on COVID-19 related research administration matters as we receive them. For research-related guidance on COVID-19, please visit the JHU Research Preparedness website. For the latest university updates, please visit JHU's COVID-19 information page. If you are in doubt as to whom to contact, please use ORA@jhmi.edu for any inquiries and you will receive a prompt response. Thank you and stay safe and healthy.
NEW CHANGES TO NIH OTHER SUPPORT AND BIOSKETCH
This notice is to address the NIH’s revised notice NOT-OD-21-110 Implementation of Changes to the Biographical Sketch and Other Support Format Page.
To ensure that all necessary information is captured and submitted to NIH, both JHURA and School of Medicine ORA will require the use of the new NIH Other Support and Biosketch forms, without the new signature/certification or uploaded copies of contracts, for all applications and submissions on or after May 25, 2021. The signatures/certifications will not be required from all JHU faculty until January 25, 2022.
We made this decision, because while NIH is not requiring use of the new Other Support and Biosketch forms until January 25, 2022, applicants are still responsible for capturing all of the necessary information set forth in their original notice, NOT-OD-21-073 - Upcoming Changes to the Biographical Sketch and Other Support Format Page for Due Dates on or after May 25, 2021.
Although JHU has decided to delay implementing the NIH signature requirement for the Other Support page, all investigators remain personally responsible for the accuracy and completeness of their Biosketch and Other Support disclosures on all submissions, including proposals, JIT requests and RPPRs. In addition, while we will not be including copies of foreign contracts in the upload to NIH, all investigators should ensure that all agreements that relate to any foreign appointment or an item listed in the Other Support page have been reviewed by their Dean’s Office, and that outside appointment agreements are on file, translated, and ready to be submitted to NIH upon request. Information about each school’s process for reviewing foreign appointments may be found here https://research.jhu.edu/jhura/compliance/foreign-engagement/.
Please always contact your research administration representative for any questions that you may have.
