Potential Duplication of NIH Research Grant Funding

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) has 27 Institutes and Centers that manage research initiatives that include awarding grant funding. The Departments of Defense and Labor, Health and Human Services, and Education Appropriations Act, 2019 and Continuing Appropriations Act, 2019 (Public Law No. 115-245) and its Accompanying Report directed that OIG examine the NIH's oversight of its grantees' compliance with NIH policies, including NIH efforts to ensure the integrity of its grant application and selection processes. We plan to review NIH's efforts to ensure the integrity of its grant application and selection process by testing NIH's internal controls for identifying and addressing potentially duplicative grant funding and overlap within its 27 Institutes and Centers. The objective of our review will be to determine whether NIH's internal controls were effective in ensuring that grantees did not receive duplicative NIH grant funding.
