National Institutes of Health (NIH):  Data Management and Sharing (DMS) Costs Update

Published August 15, 2023 via Research News

NIH recently announced that effective for applications submitted for due dates on or after October 5, 2023, NIH will no longer require the use of the single DMS cost line item.
NIH recognizes that DMS costs may be requested in many cost categories. Therefore, in line with NIH standard budget instructions, DMS costs must be requested in the appropriate cost category, e.g., personnel, equipment, supplies, and other expenses, following the instructions for the R&R Budget Form or PHS 398 Modular Budget Form, as applicable.
While the single cost line item is no longer required, NIH will require applicants to specify estimated DMS cost details within the “Budget Justification” attachment of the R&R Budget Form or “Additional Narrative Justification” attachment of the PHS 398 Modular Budget Form, pursuant to the instructions.
NIH will publish updates to the NIH How to Apply – Application Guide prior to the October 5, 2023, effective date.
