Foreign Grants Management

Here foreign grantees, investigators, and project leaders learn how to manage NIH grant funds and comply with requirements. Principal investigators and staff in the institutional business office work closely together throughout the entire grant period.

The information in this section covers grants management only. If you don’t have an international grant yet, refer to International Applications and visit other sections in the site’s navigation for other stages. 

NIAID provides a Template for Foreign Institutions—Manual of Operations for Research Awards. Use it as a generic starting point to document your processes for sponsored research grants and cooperative agreements.

You can attend in-person training through our Upcoming NIH International Grants and Contracts Training Workshops.

Be aware that NIAID performs site visits to review the administrative and financial systems for NIAID awards that include foreign entities. Learn more at Preparing for a Foreign Organization System (FOS) Review.
