Updated Guide Notice: Upcoming Changes to the Notice of Award (NoA) Beginning October 1, 2020

The Notice of Award (NoA) is the legal document issued to notify the recipient that an award has been made and that funds may be requested. Notices of Awards are sent to the email address specified in the Institutional Profile, which can be updated by a signing official (SO). Principal investigators (PI) and SOs can view NoAs from the Status Information screen.

The Page One of the NoA serves as the first page for all HSS (Department of Health and Human Services) Notices of Awards for discretionary awards. See a sample of the Page One of the NoA.
