Appendix

Notes Regarding Tables

Note 1: (Re: Tables Ia & Ib) Data for Table Ia (for the August 2010 Council Round) and Table Ib (for the October 2010 Council Round) were run on 7/27/09. Only applications assigned to a division by that date were included in these tables. For August 2010 (page 4) ten applications had not been assigned and for October 2010 (page 5) six applications had not been assigned as of 7/27/09. Applications that had been withdrawn by that date have been excluded. Dollar amounts shown in these tables are direct costs only (dollars requested for only the first year).

Applications to the Loan Repayment Program were also received and considered for the August 2010 Council Round. These applications (approximately 100 applications) are excluded from Table Ia.

(Re: Table II) For Table II, run on 8/2/10, applications that had been assigned to a division, reviewed, and percentiled by that date were included. Five grant applications in the RPG line had not been assigned to a division at the time Table II was prepared and three had not been reviewed.

Note 2: (Re: Table Ib) Research Program Grant applications shown in the first line include P01 (Program Projects), R01 (Research Projects), R03 (Small Research Grants), R15 (Academic Research Enhancement Awards), R21 (Exploratory/Developmental Awards), R33 ( Exploratory/Developmental Grants Phase II), R34 (Clinical Trial Planning Grant Awards), R36 (Aging Research Dissertation Awards to Increase Diversity), R37 (Method to Extend Research in Time (MERIT) Award and U01 (Cooperative Agreements). Contracts are not included. Costs shown are the first year total direct costs requested. Facilities and Administrative costs are not included.

Note 3: (Re: Tables Ia & Ib) Data include applications “to be reviewed by Council”, applications considered not competitive and applications requesting $50,000 or less.

Note 4: (Re: Table Ib) The data may include competing supplements to existing grants.

Note 5: (Re: Table II) The data include Research Project Grant applications where percentiling was used to rank the applications. As applications responding to RFAs, and a few other applications, are not normally percentiled, the number of applications in Table II is usually less than the corresponding number in line 1 of Table I.

Note 6: Data for Table I was run on 8/2/10. Applications that had been withdrawn by that date were excluded. One ARRA application for the August 2010 Council Round had not been assigned as of 8/2/10. Dollar amounts shown in Table 1 are direct costs only (dollars requested for only the first year).

Note 7: Data shown in Rows 1 and 2 pertain to RPG applications. Row 1 shows applications for the R01 mechanism. Row 2 shows applications for the RC4 mechanism. Only R01 and RC4 mechanisms were considered for ARRA funding in the August 2010 Council Round.

Data shown in Row 2 pertains to applications in response to RFAs OD-10-002, 005, 008 and 09. (See the footnote on page 9 for the title of these RFAs). Row 3 shows data pertaining to R43, R44 applications in response to PA-10-050. Row 4 pertains to data for KM1 awards in response to OD-10-011.

Note 8: Data include applications to be reviewed by Council, applications considered not competitive and applications requesting $50,000 or less.
