Legislation to Terminate RequiredNot Applicable
Legislation StatusNot Applicable
How does cmte accomplish its purpose?*Section 492 of the PHS Act states that The Secretary shall by regulation require appropriate technical and scientific peer review of -- (A) applications ...; and (B) biomedical and behavioral research and development contracts.... This Council is composed of scientific members who provide the second level of peer review; advise on policy development, program implementation and evaluation; and identify research needs and opportunities of the Institute. During this reporting period, the committee reviewed 8426 applications requesting $9,701,498,297 in direct costs.
How is membership balanced?*The National Advisory Council for Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering is composed of twelve appointed members with research interests and responsibilities paralleling those of the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering.
How frequent & relevant are cmte mtgs?*The committee met three times during the fiscal year. The National Advisory Council for Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering provides advice on a continuing basis on the types of scientific research programs that should be supported and on how to carry out the designated mission and responsibilities of the Institute.
Why advice can't be obtained elsewhere?*The National Advisory Council for Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering is composed of scientific members who provide the second level of review for research grant applications; advise on policy development, program implementation and evaluation; and identify research needs and opportunities of the Institute. The quality, scope, and balance of advice from this Council cannot be obtained from NIH staff or from other established sources because the membership of the Council is constituted to meet the specific requirements of the mandated mission of the Council and of the Institute.
Why close or partially close meetings?The meetings of the National Advisory Council for Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering were partially closed to the public for the review of grant applications. Sections 552b(c)(4) and 552b(c)(6) of the Government in the Sunshine Act permits the closing of meetings where discussion could reveal confidential trade secrets or commercial property such as patentable material and personal information, the disclosure of which would constitute a clearly unwarranted invasion of personal privacy.

Outcome Increased Customer SatisfactionNoAction CommentAn action of approved or recommended for grants receiving review by this Council does not infer that the grant will be or has been funded. Research grant applications submitted to NIH must go through a two-step review process that includes the initial peer review for scientific and technical merit and a second step of review and approval by a National Advisory Council that includes program relevance. In addition, prior to an award or funding being made, NIH staff must conduct an administrative review for a number of other considerations. These include alignment with NIH's funding principles, review of the project budget, assessment of the applicant's management systems, determination of applicant eligibility, and compliance with public policy requirements. After all these steps have been completed, NIH officials make funding decisions on individual grant applications.
