About the Presentation

How to Manage Your NIMH Grant: Guidance for Low- and Middle-Income Countries
Managing a grant from the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), can be challenging. Investigators who do not have an Office of Sponsored Programs at their university to help them manage their grant must learn how to do this themselves. Dedicated grants managers within universities also need to know about NIMH’s specific requirements for managing a grant. This webinar is designed as an introduction to managing a NIMH grant. Attendees of this webinar will also meet the individuals at NIMH who can assist them when they have questions about managing a NIMH grant. We are targeting this webinar to investigators and all personnel in university offices of sponsored programs who have responsibility for ensuring that a NIMH grant is properly administered.

Topics to be covered include

  • Roles & Responsibilities
  • NIH Grants Policy Statement
  • Institutional Review Board (IRB) Approvals
  • Recruitment Milestones Reports (RMR) and the Inclusion Management System (IMS)
  • Research Performance Progress Reports (RPPR)
  • Prior Approvals for Changes
  • Final Financial Reports (FFR)
  • No-Cost Extensions (NCE) and Grant Close-out
