Delayed awards from NIH

Researchers,

NIH has issued the following announcement.  Further information can be viewed at the link below. 

Subject: Delayed awards from NIH

This Notice is to inform NIH applicants and grantees that NIH's ability to issue competing and non-competing awards may be delayed for two weeks from May 19, 2015 until June 3, 2015. During this time, a series of software upgrades will be made to NIH accounting and business systems that have wide-reaching impacts across the NIH.  These also connect to NIH grant-making systems, and while every effort will be made to minimize the expected downtime, it may take up to two weeks to complete all the work.
