Updated Other Support & Biosketch Guidance
- Read the new NIH Biosketch and Other Support disclosure requirements Quick Guide. NIH will require all faculty to include disclosure copies of non-JHU contracts related to foreign appointments and/or employment as part of their Other Support disclosures.
- All faculty will be required to electronically sign their NIH Other Support disclosures using DocuSign. Need help with DocuSign? Instructions on how to use DocuSign can be found here. Please also see the DocuSign workflow instructions and tutorial on how to create DocuSign envelopes.
Please also consult the University-wide Current and Pending/Other Support page for further guidance: https://jhura.jhu.edu/current-and-pending-or-other-support/
Faculty Note: Individual faculty accounts are not necessary to sign Other Support documents in DocuSign. Faculty should work with their department Grants & Contracts Analyst (GCA) to prepare Other Support for ORA review prior to signature. Once finalized, the GCA will upload Other Support document(s) in DocuSign and request faculty signature(s) via an automated DocuSign email.
