Appendix

Notes Regarding Tables I and II

Note 1: (Re: Tables I & II) Data for Table I were run on 4/13/11. Only applications assigned to a division by that date were included. (Two applications for the May 2011 Council had not been assigned at that time.) Applications that had been withdrawn by that date were excluded from Table I. For Table II, run on 4/13/11, only applications that had been assigned to a division, reviewed, and percentiled by that time were included. Six grant applications in the RPG line did not meet these criteria at the time Table II was prepared. Dollar amounts shown are direct costs only.

Note 2: (Re: Table I) Research Program Grant (RPG) 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) 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: Table I & II ) Data include applications to be reviewed by Council, applications considered not competitive and applications requesting $50,000 or less.

Note 4: (Re: Table I) The data may include revisions to existing grants. These revisions are counted as separate applications except in the Center line.

Note 5: (Re: Table II) The data include RPG 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 of RPG applications in Table I.
