Funding Decisions and Award Policies

The decision to award a contract, grant application or cooperative agreement occurs after it has been recommended favorably by an initial scientific review group and by the NCATS Advisory Council, which provides a second level of review. Funding decisions are made according to the center’s funding policy and based upon the following considerations:

  • Availability of funds
  • Relevance of the proposed project to program priorities in support of the NCATS mission
