>I started writing tonight this afternoon with every intention of writing a good post. Just as soon as I finished putting together my application to transition the K99 to the R00 Phase. Unfortunately, it took forever. And now I'm exhausted. Especially since I got up early this morning to go for a run with the Divas. Now I have no idea what I was going to write about.

On the plus side, I should be able to get my grant into the BigU pipeline with enough time to hit the deadline my PO set in order to transition this fiscal year. Woo Hoo! Now I'm going to bed.

Once they understand this, they will absolutely ensure that your R00 transition app gets submitted to NIH on time, regardless of how near the deadline you enter it into the internal pipeline.Our grants and contracts office has submitted grants to NIH for me with only hours of turn around before an NIH deadline. What they do is "red sheet" the grant, which means they submit it to NIH without internal review, but reserve the right to withdraw it if the after-the-fact internal institutional review indicates that there are fatal flaws that the institution can't tolerate (such as assertions of voluntary cost-sharing or improper effort allocation and the like).

    >CPP, I am sure that you are right. There is really no reason for them to hold this up, as the transition isn't really that hard. The problem I have run across here (and at PostDoc Inst) is that I am one the first to transition the K99 to the independent phase so everyone is a little edgy with the "new" mechanism. But your point about indirects is not lost on me! Thanks for the advice.
