Just-in-Time (JIT)

NIH uses Just-in-Time procedures to collect certain elements of an application after review when the application is under consideration for funding. Elements typically collected include Other Support (OS) for all key personnel and if applicable Certification of IRB Approval, Verification of IACUC Approval, Human Subjects Education Requirement, Identification of Human Embryonic Stem Cell Lines, Genomic Data Sharing, Institutional Certification, My Bibliography Report of Publication and any Other Information Requested by the Awarding IC. If responding to an email from the Program Officer the deadline is usually specified and both the PI and Grant Manager should take note.

Please note, the recently released NIH Notice Number NOT-OD-19-114, intents to remind the extramural community of the NIH Policies on Other Support and on Policies related to Financial Conflicts of Interest and Foreign Components. For further guidance, please see Harvard Chan School's Procedures on Other Support Documentation.   

Non-NIH sponsors may ask for information prior to the award. These requests can vary from sponsor to sponsor.
