Guidance Regarding Disclosures of NIH Other Support

Published March 16, 2020

This website contains guidance for completing Other Support documents for the National Institutes of Health (NIH). The NIH released a notice in July 2019 to “clarify,” not change or update, the information requested in Other Support.

Though NIH called the notice a “clarification” some of the information now requested appears to be a departure from what was traditionally provided in Other Support. In addition to NIH, NSF is revising their Current and Pending Support instructions.

This guidance is subject to change and will be revised as sponsors release new information.

Other Support requirements are not the same as the University’s Financial Conflict of Interest disclosing requirements, though there will be overlap of activities that are included in both. Please contact the UB COI Officer regarding any questions concerning what should be disclosed via the Click COI Module to satisfy the University’s Conflict of Interest Policy.
