Notice of Special Interest: Notice of Availability of Administrative Supplements for the NCATS Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA) Program

The National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS) announces this opportunity for investigators with active Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA) Program Awards to submit administrative supplement requests according to PA-20-272 “Administrative Supplements to Existing NIH Grants and Cooperative Agreements (Parent Admin Supp Clinical Trial Optional)”.

This Notice will support additional funds to active CTSA Program Awards.  These administrative supplements are available to meet increased costs that are within the scope of the approved award but were unforeseen when the new or renewal application or grant progress report for non-competing continuation support was submitted.

NCATS will support projects that may be developed, demonstrated and/or disseminated within the remaining active budget period that started in FY23 for the existing parent award.  The intent of these supplements is to provide short-term and/or catalytic support for projects with a significant and unmet need. Applicants for the administrative supplements are encouraged to utilize collaborations to enhance the reach and impact of the activity. Administrative supplements must add value to the science proposed in the aims of the original project; as such, they must be within the scientific scope of the parent grant. Enthusiasm will be higher for requests that describe a clear outcome and that have the potential for greatest impact across the CTSA Program consortium. 

As applicable, the proposed research effort should be supported by a strong rationale and should contribute to advancing translational sciences. There is no guarantee that funds are available from NCATS or for any specific grant. Applicants are strongly encouraged to discuss these potential requests with their NCATS Program Official listed in the Notice of Award of the parent grant. 

  • Applications will be accepted as of July 10, 2023 and on a rolling basis through August 11, 2023 by 5:00 PM local time of the applicant organization. This NOSI expires on August 12, 2023. An application submitted in response to this NOSI that is received on August 12, 2023 or later, will be withdrawn. Applications will be considered for funding in FY23 and subsequent fiscal years through FY24 pending: award timelines, availability of funds, and programmatic priority.
