COGR Comments & Extension Request to Office of Evaluation and Inspections, OIG, HHS on NIH Monetary Donations that Support Research Survey (OEI-03-22-00570)


On January 30, 2024, COGR committee members met with representatives from the HHS OIG to discuss the recent HHS OIG NIH Recipient Institutions’ Reporting of Monetary Donations that Support Research Survey (OEI-03-22-00570).  The survey was sent to all U.S.-based institutions that received NIH funding in 2022. COGR provided questions in advance. 

  • Notes summarizing the main points from the discussion are available in the COGR Portal (log in required).

In addition, COGR has submitted a letter requesting an extension of the deadline to respond to the survey, which is currently set for Feb. 8, 2024.  This letter also requests that the survey include an “other” response for each question, along with an associated free-text box for additional information and explanation.

Please feel free to contact Kris West, Director of Research, Ethics and Compliance at if you have any questions regarding these notes.
