ED SF424 Supplement Form
The Grants.gov ED SF424 Supplement form maps information from a number of areas in the Kuali Research system, see below sections for further detail on the mapping logic. This form also allows you to transmit one attachment file to the sponsor and in Kuali Research the Narrative Type used to populate this form is the 'ED_SF424_Supplement_Attachment' Type - which is Proposal Narrative Type ID 54. Whatever is entered as the Description when uploading this attachment will map as the file name in the form. This form is also supported by the Grants.gov S2S Questionnaire; Question ID 133.
1. Project Director: The Principal Investigator for the proposal will be listed as the Project Director on this form; the proposal person contact details will publish to the form: Address, Telephone, Fax, Email.
2. Applicant Experience: This comes from the S2S mandatory questionnaire question (ID 133) 'Is assistance being requested under a program that gives special consideration to novice applicants?'. Available answers are Yes, No, Not Applicable.
3. Human Subjects Research: Kuali will check the Compliance section in the proposal to determine if a human subject special review has been added.
a. 'Are any research activities involving human subjects planned at any time during the proposed project Period?' - will be marked Yes only if special review type code is 1 in present in the proposal.
b. 'Are ALL the research activities proposed designated to be exempt from the regulations?' - if special review approval status code is 4 'Exempt' it will set this answer to “Yes”, and get exemption numbers from the special review Exempt # field. If Exemption is “No”, we will get the Assurance number from the proposal‘s Organization record. Please attach an explanation Narrative
c. "Exempt Research" or "Nonexempt Research" narrative - only required if Human Subjects is 'Yes' and uses the ED_SF424_Supplement_Attachment attachment type.
