UW Resources for Complying with NIH Public Access Policy

Date: Tues, March 12, 1:00-2:30pm

Location: Biotechnology Center Auditorium (Rm 1111), 425 Henry Mall

Designed specifically for CALS PIs, research staff, and administrators, this presentation will provide information on pertinent aspects of the NIH Public Access Policy and discuss services and resources available to assist  PIs in complying with the policy.

Beginning July 1, 2013, NIH will require full compliance with their public access policy; non-compliance will result in withholding of pending award notices ( We encourage anyone who may be affected by this policy change to attend and learn how to avoid delays in issuance of funding.

During the same session, Sarah Marcotte and Becky Bound from the CALS Research Division PreAward Team will discuss the recent NIH announcement that RPPR (Research Performance Progress Report) will be the mandatory submission format for all fellowship and research (SNAP) progress reports as of March 1, 2013 (i.e., for any awards that will be issued July 1 or after).

Sarah and Becky will provide a summary of important information about this transition and  helpful resources for preparing reports using the new format.
