Administrative Supplements for Dissemination of Surveillance Research

Questions

  1. The instructions detail the dissemination and evaluation plan needs to be informed by dissemination theories and include process measures tracking dissemination plan components. Where can I find more information about dissemination theories?
  2. Does this supplement apply to research with populations outside of the U.S., or is this exclusively for study of populations within our borders?
  3. Can I apply even if I am currently supported through a surveillance contract?
  4. If a project grant consists of multiple component projects and the PI for the grant is not the Project Leader of the component project that will be proposed for dissemination, may the current Project Leader be the PI on the RFA supplement submitted to the NCI?
  5. If the PI of the parent grant is going to retire after the application receipt date, can a new PI be listed on the application submitted?
  6. Where can I find examples of previously awarded dissemination surveillance supplements?

Answers

Scientific / Research:

  1. The instructions detail the dissemination and evaluation plan needs to be informed by dissemination theories and include process measures tracking dissemination plan components. Where can I find more information about dissemination theories?

    You can find more information on dissemination theories at the DCCPS Implementation Science website.

  2. Does this supplement apply to research with populations outside of the U.S., or is this exclusively for study of populations within our borders?

    As noted in the section on eligible institutions, foreign institutions may not apply for this supplement. These supplements are for the study of populations within the U.S.

Financial / Grants Management Issues:

  1. Can I apply even if I am currently supported through a surveillance contract?

    Investigators who currently have contracts in surveillance research are encouraged to collaborate with investigators who have active grants in surveillance. The supplements must be to an ongoing and awarded grant. Contracts are not eligible for supplements through this mechanism.

  2. If a project grant consists of multiple component projects and the PI for the grant is not Project Leader of the component project that will be proposed for dissemination may the current Project Leader be the PI on the RFA supplement submitted to the NCI?

    The proposed dissemination projects are going to be awarded as supplements to existing grants - so the PI has to be the same on the supplement as on the parent grant. NCI can't supplement an individual component of a grant.

  3. If the PI of the parent grant is going to retire after the application receipt date can a new PI be listed on the application submitted?

    The PI requesting a supplement must be the same as the PI on the parent grant. If the PI of the parent is going to retire he/she can either change the PI of the parent grant prior to submission of the application and list the new PI on the application for the supplement or include his/her name on the application for the supplement and change the PI on the parent grant and the supplement if the supplement is awarded funding.

  4. Where can I find examples of previously awarded dissemination surveillance supplements?
