  4. The NIH:

    NIH has been working with EcoHealth Alliance (EHA) to review its compliance with requirements of the NIH Grants Policy statement due to concerns with administrative non-compliance with the terms and conditions of NIH grant awards. NIH’s approach with cases of grant non-compliance is generally to provide a grantee the opportunity to come into compliance in an effort to preserve the research, when possible. This is consistent with HHS grant regulations, which provide that in cases of non-compliance, a funding agency can impose specific award conditions; and if the agency determines that the noncompliance cannot be remedied by specific award conditions, then the agency may take more severe actions, such as terminating an award in whole or in part.

  5. Bart Katureebe:
