How can I avoid the award date of a NIH grant from becoming a public disclosure?

The NIH Grants Policy outlines confidentiality of NIH proposals and awarded grants, the Freedom of Information Act, and instructions on how to identify proprietary information at the time of submission.

If you are unsure whether your NIH proposal or any presentation materials contain proprietary information, get in touch with our office well before submitting the NIH proposal or public disclosure date and we can help you review the materials.
