Commons Working Group (CWG)

The Commons Working Group (CWG) is an open meeting that allows NIH to have a conversation with members of the user community to discuss electronic business processes between NIH and our grantee community.

This group meets three times a year in January, May and September in conjunction with the Federal Demonstration Partnership meetings.

If you wish, you can subscribe or unsubscribe from the CWG Listserv.
