The purpose of this solicitation is to invite the submission of renewal
applications and to describe application, review, and award procedures
for the renewal of large-scale collaborative project awards (commonly
called glue grants,
http://www.nigms.nih.gov/funding/gluegrants.html). This announcement
applies to awards whose support from the National Institute of General
Medical Sciences (NIGMS) for the Phase II application began in FY 2000,
FY 2001, and FY 2003 (no awards were made in FY 2002). [New
applications for large-scale collaborative project awards are not
currently being accepted by NIGMS and are not part of this request for
applications (RFA). NIGMS may consider re-opening this program for new
awards at a future date.]

NIGMS issued the first RFA for large-scale collaborative project awards
in 1999, and the program was reannounced in each of the next three
years. One award was made in FY 2000, three awards were made in FY
2001, and one award was made in FY 2003. Each of these awards was made
for five years. Currently active large-scale collaborative project
awards are eligible to compete for one renewal period of up to five
additional years of support.

Critical elements of these renewal applications will include evidence
that a highly integrated and functioning team has been established;
that good progress is being made; that the progress makes feasible
accomplishment of the final goals in the next time period; that results
have been achieved that could not have been accomplished by individual
efforts alone; that plans for the next project period are compelling;
and that plans have been made to accommodate the termination of NIGMS
support at the end of that period. Overall, the applications should
describe the proposed and unanticipated challenges that were met, how
the project has evolved, where it stands currently, and how the final
phase will be achieved.
