Proposals that advance equity in data including efforts that (a) increase evidence to support evaluation of outcomes of FDA-regulated products by demographic data including, but not limited to, ethnicity, race, age, and geography, and/or (b) leverage big data, novel data sources and artificial intelligence/machine learning options to contribute to informing the continued evaluation of the safety and efficacy of FDA-approved products (e.g., therapeutics, diagnostics, and vaccines).

Proposals that increase understanding of diverse voices, including efforts that (a) support research to leverage novel data sources to understand diverse patient preferences and unmet needs, and/or (b) support expansion of culturally and linguistically tailored education (e.g., patient, healthcare providers).

Applicant organizations must complete and maintain the following registrations as described in the SF 424 (R&R) Application Guide to be eligible to apply for or receive an award. All registrations must be completed prior to the application being submitted. Registration can take 6 weeks or more, so applicants should begin the registration process as soon as possible. Failure to complete registrations in advance of a due date is not a valid reason for a late submission.
- Dun and Bradstreet Universal Numbering System (DUNS) - http://fedgov.dnb.com/webform - All registrations require that applicants be issued a DUNS number. After obtaining a DUNS number, applicants can begin both SAM and eRA Commons registrations. The same DUNS number must be used for all registrations, as well as on the grant application.
- System for Award Management (SAM)– https://www.sam.gov/portal/public/SAM/ - Applicants must complete and maintain an active registration, which requires renewal at least annually. The renewal process may require as much time as the initial registration. SAM registration includes the assignment of a Commercial and Government Entity (CAGE) Code for domestic organizations which have not already been assigned a CAGE Code.
- NATO Commercial and Government Entity (NCAGE) Code – https://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/url_redirect.htm?id=11176 - Foreign organizations must obtain an NCAGE code (in lieu of a CAGE code) in order to register in SAM.
- eRA Commons - https://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/url_redirect.htm?id=11123 - Applicants must have an active DUNS number to register in eRA Commons. Organizations can register with the eRA Commons as they are working through their SAM or Grants.gov registration, but all registrations must be in place by time of submission. eRA Commons requires organizations to identify at least one Signing Official (SO) and at least one Program Director/Principal Investigator (PD/PI) account in order to submit an application.
