HHS OIG Recommends New Federal Regulations to Govern NIH Grantee Institutions


According to OIG, NIH lacks information on institutional conflicts and the impact these conflicts may have on NIH sponsored research


The Office of Inspector General (OIG) for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) recently issued a report finding that:

- There are no Federal requirements that grantee institutions identify, report, and manage actual or potential institutional conflicts.

- The National Institute of Health (NIH) should require grantee institutions to identify, report, and address institutional conflicts in a consistent and uniform manner.

- It is important that NIH know of the existence of such conflicts so it can ensure that research conducted by grantee institutions is free from any intended or unintended bias.
