NIH Grant Closeout Process
The National Institutes of Health (NIH) invests approximately $41.7 billion annually in medical research and is the largest Federal funding source for health research and development. Prior OIG work identified issues regarding NIH's grant post-award closeout processes. A closeout of an award is the process by which NIH determines that all applicable administrative actions and all required work under an award have been completed by the recipient and NIH (45 CFR § 75.381). We will determine whether NIH closed its grants in accordance with Federal requirements and departmental guidance. We will also determine which actions NIH took to address noncompliance with closeout requirements.
