NIH's definition of Other Support reads as follows: 

Includes all resources made available to researcher or senior key personnel in support of and/or related to all of their research endeavors, regardless of whether or not they have monetary value and regardless of whether they are based at the institution the researcher identifies for the current grant. Other support does not include training awards, prizes, gifts or start-up support from the US based institution.

Remember to list all financial resources mentioned above regardless of geographical origin (domestic or foreign) 

NIH will ask you to submit the other support information via a mechanism called the Just in Time (JIT) process (not at the time of proposal submission).

If a decision is made to fund a proposal application, the assigned Institute and Center (IC) at NIH will notify the PI and the Institutional Official via e-mail (see sample e-mail) to request other support information PRIOR to making an award. 

NIH provides detailed instructions, a template in MS Word, as well as a sample Other Support document to use as a reference. Use the template to format the information in the Other support report from SeRA. 

The information is submitted electronically to NIH via their electronic portal (eRA Commons)

  • The amount to be listed in the Other Support for a PPG project is the total annual direct costs for the current budget year.

  • The PI can choose to show the Stanford portion of the project under the total amount. 

  • Since the SeRA Other Support report calls out the dollar amount for a subaward, a statement can be added to the narrative at the end of the major goals if desired, e.g. (Note: $564,323 of the current year's annual direct costs will be allocated to subawards).
