Limited Competition: Extramural Research Facilities Improvement Program (C06)

Grant Amount: The participating NIH components intend to commit up to $4M for 2-5 awards in FY 2013.

This FOA requests applications on the construction, expansion, repair or renovation of new or existing research facilities at the National Primate Research Centers (NPRCs). The proposed construction project must support the development of appropriate experimental research and housing facilities to conduct HIV/AIDS-related research with non-human primates (NHPs). Applicants can propose major alterations and renovations (A&R) to existing facilities, add to existing facilities, complete uninhabitable shell space in existing facilities, or construct new facilities. Competition is limited to the NPRCs (

The acquisition and installation of fixed equipment such as casework, fume hoods, large autoclaves, heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems for the research areas, cage washers, animal ventilated racks, static racks, downdraft tables, sterilizing equipment, and other large equipment that are connected to building structure and services, or biological safety cabinets are allowed. Discussion of the appropriateness of the location of such instruments should be part of the application. The location of all fixed equipment should be noted in the line drawings. A list of appropriate equipment can be found at .

Applicants requesting equipment that is not on this list should discuss this issue with program staff before submitting the application. Applicants must not request only fixed equipment when responding to this FOA. Applicants that request only or primarily fixed equipment and do not have at least 40% of the proposed budget devoted to renovation will be returned as non-responsive.

No facilities and administrative (F&A) costs will be awarded. The NIH reserves the right to conduct post award site visits when deemed essential.

Special notes for High-Technology Equipment: The planning for and inclusion of new or unique medical and scientific technology, such as linear accelerators or positron emission tomography scanners, may require special consultants. The proposed design must be developed to accommodate the equipment selection, as well as recommendations and guidance of the respective manufacturers.

Special notes for Magnetic Resonance Imaging Facilities (MRI): The planning, design, and installation of a MRI system in a facility requires extreme care to ensure that the magnet is sufficiently isolated from ferromagnetic and radio frequency influences of the affected environment and that the surrounding environment is isolated from the effects of the magnetic field. Selection of the proper location for the magnet is extremely important and must be addressed in the earliest stages of planning and designing the MRI system. The specific guidance of the manufacturer of the selected equipment must be followed. Consultants should be used to verify specific requirements. Discussion of the appropriateness of the location of such instruments as well as all requested fixed equipment should be part of the application.
