For submissions with due dates on or after October 5, 2023, NIH will no longer require Data Management and Sharing (DMS) costs to be shared in a single line item. Instead, consistent with standard budget instructions, DMS costs must be requested in the appropriate cost category, e.g., personnel, equipment, supplies, and other expenses, following the instructions and providing details as instructed within the applicable form (e.g., R&R Budget Form or PHS 398 Modular Budget Form). See full details in Notice NOT-OD-23-161.
Please note that to date (as of 8/8/2023), NIH has NOT reflected this change in their FAQs and resources on budgeting and costs under section F. Budgets/Costs. Be advised those instructions will change for submissions with due dates on or after October 5, 2023.
