  10. Grantee Acceptance The grantee indicates acceptance of the NoA and its associated terms and conditions by drawing down funds from the grant.

  11. What May Cause Delays? • Lack of or slow response to inquiries • Late submission of required documentation • Incomplete/inaccurate documentation submission • Inadequate justifications • Missing assurances

  12. Payments • Funds are requested electronically through the payment management system (PMS): • Delivered via electronic funds transfer (EFT). • Payment can be requested as often as needed, but must accommodate only immediate needs.

  13. Payments (cont.) • Foreign grantees must register in PMS by submitting the required forms to PMS after an award is issued. • Required forms: 1) Division of Payment Management (DPM) PMS System Access Form for each PMS user 2) Direct Deposit Sign-Up Form (SF-1199A) • Forms are required for each organization if it does not have a PMS account for HHS awards or if the organization has a PMS account, but there is a change in the banking information.

  14. Payments (cont.) • Currency exchange rates in preparation of financial reporting of expenditure data for awards: When preparing the Federal Financial Report (FFR) expenditure data, grantees must use the currency rate in effect at the time the funds are drawn down from PMS.

  15. Payments (cont.) • Foreign grantees are strongly encouraged to use U.S. banks or banks with U.S. branches (ensures that payments arrive on time). • The requirement for grantees to maintain grant funds in an interest bearing account is unchanged. See NIH Grants Policy Statement Section 6.3: Interest Earned on Advances of Grant Funds. • Interest earned in excess of $250 per year in the aggregate on advances of federal funds must be returned in U.S. dollars by reimbursement check.
