The NIH funding data consists of an expansive reporting and information knowledge base. Located here are data on everything from success rates to historical NIH spending categories, from extramural grant and contract award statistics to NIH budget appropriations and levels of spending by budget mechanisms. A grantee is legally accountable for the performance and financial aspects of the grant-supported project or activity. The NIH is then responsible to the public for complete and accurate reporting of all results.
The NIH Budget and Spending reports provide information about the detailed estimates and justifications for research and research supported activities along with a comprehensive overview of official presentations.
Categorical spending is derived from the RCDC computer-based process that sorts NIH-funded projects into categories of research area, disease, or condition.
Federally funded research is carried out by the government itself, or through grants to outside academic and research institutions. Government sponsored provides publicly shared results that can result in mass collaborative projects much beyond the scope of private researchers.
