Changes in Project Modification Notification Process

September 27, 2017

Please note that effective as of the date of this announcement, Health Services Research and Development (HSR&D) will no longer be communicating Project Modification Request Notifications via official letter format. For future notifications, the original modification pdf request form, indicating approval or disapproval, signed by HSR&D leadership and with comments from Central Office will be sent to the field along with budget/pink sheets as applicable.

“To be funded studies” that are still in the Just-In-Time (JIT) review, should no longer submit project modifications. These requested changes will be approved as part of the pre-funding JIT compliance process.

For reference, Project Modification instructions and forms can be found at the following links:
- Instructions on how to submit a Project Modification request
- The Project Modification request template

Requests for project modifications or questions about the process must be emailed to
