To NCI staff, grantees, advisors, reviewers and others:

I am writing to keep you abreast of the ways in which the National Cancer Institute (NCI) and its extramural and intramural research programs have been --- and are likely to be --- affected by the current shutdown of the federal government.  And I am also writing to ask for your help in responding to the difficult situation that we are likely to face when the government is reopened.

The NIH continues to be shut down for all non-excepted activities. This means that the vast majority of NIH staff that oversee program, review, and grants management are furloughed, NIH grants and contract submissions are not being processed, reviews are not occurring, and no awards are being made. As described in NOT-OD-13-126, the Payment Management Systems remains operational and funds for most grants awarded before the shutdown can continue to be drawn down.

Although an Appropriation Act has not been passed, awardees of active CDC grants and cooperative agreements should continue with their planned grant- related activities. However, due to federal furloughs, certain grant-related administrative functions and tasks must be suspended or modified for most, but not all, CDC grants and cooperative agreements. The following guidance provides the most up to date information regarding the administrative management of most CDC grants and cooperative agreements.
