The HSS system is a shared system that enables grant recipients to electronically report and update their data on human subjects and clinical trials to NIH; and for NIH agency staff to monitor and manage the data.
The FCOI Module allows institutional users to manage the Financial Conflict of Interest (FCOI) reporting process for their particular institution by reporting the existence of identified FCOIs to the granting agency as required by the FCOI regulation, as it pertains to grants and cooperative agreements (42 CFR Part 50 Subpart F).
The Grant Closeout (GC) module is used by Agency staff to close grants and to track and monitor the status of the close-out process. It interfaces with the eRA Commons where grantees can electronically complete and submit their grant close-out documents. Agency staff use GCM to record and process the information necessary to close out a grant.
