Need and Use of Information Collection: The purpose and use of the information collection for this project is to collect and track certain requests (such as budget modifications or undertaking particular activities) from NIH grantees in an electronic format. This new electronic system, ePASS (electronic Prior Approval Submission System), will enable grantees to have a standard way to submit requests for their projects per NIH policy. The grantee will initiate a request for a certain action as required by NIH policy: Use of unobligated balances/carryover, change of PI, change of effort, Training Grant (NRSA) waivers, significant rebudgeting, 2nd and 3rd no cost extensions, and change of scope. These are all prior approvals as required by the NIH Grants Policy, and need to be reviewed and approved by the NHLBI. ePASS will provide a template to ensure that all specific points are addressed and documented in the official grant file. All information is submitted via the internet, tracked in ePASS, and the documentation will automatically be forwarded to the official grant file. The system will ensure that individuals authorized by the grantee are submitting requests and that the appropriate NIH staff is receiving the requests. The requests will be template driven so that the grantee is including the minimally required information, thus eliminating the usual back and forth to obtain missing information. Forms will have automatic fill-in capability that will reduce typos in grant numbers and PI names, further reducing approval time. Reminders will be sent to NIH staff within ePASS based on roles to ensure timely responses to the grantee. The system will facilitate email communication with applicants by automatic notifications when applications are received and when NIH has made a determination regarding a request (approval issued or request denied with explanation for denial).
