Department of Health and Human Services: Global Infectious Disease Research Administration Development Award for Low-and Middle-Income Country Institutions

Now Funding Agencies will be at your Fingertips

Deadline: 31 July 2020

The Department of Health and Human Services is seeking applications from research institutions in low- to middle-income countries (LMIC) for its Global Infectious Disease Research Administration Development Award. The department seeks to provide senior administrators from these institutions with advanced training in the management of NIH grants. The ultimate goal is to improve oversight of NIAID grant awards and compliance with NIH funding policies and Federal research funding requirements for NIAID-supported foreign institutions in low to middle-income countries.

The program will provide support for travel of senior administrator(s) from the LMIC institution to a partner US host institution where they will receive hands-on training in grants administration. These senior administrator(s) are expected to train others at their home institutions and, as needed, implement grants management changes, as well as serve as a resource for training other local or regional institutions receiving NIAID funds.

The program also aims to support “sustainability initiatives” for NIH research grants administration. Sustainability initiatives include activities that facilitate research grants administration activities that would be initiated during the grant funding period with the potential to continue after the funding has ended. Examples include, but are not limited to, development of standard operating procedures (SOPs) that include specific steps for effectively managing sponsored research funds within the local institution and the development of a new in-house grants management career track for business management trainees or college students.
