Review ORA’s Q&A Slides: Changes to NIH Other Support & Signature Requirement (December 2021)

Please also consult the University-wide Current and Pending/Other Support page for further guidance:

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.
