Interim arrangements for reviewing, managing and applying for an NIHR or PRP award
We have recently migrated information about the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) programmes we manage to the main NIHR website and are in the process of migrating the Policy Research Programme (PRP) to the main Department of Health (DH) website. We are also moving our extranet system to a new research management system, CC Grant Tracker, to improve the processing and management of NIHR and DH applications and awards launching in February 2011.
Reviewing and managing awards
From 5pm on 21 January 2011, the current extranet for the Central Commissioning Facility (CCF) will no longer be available except to NIHR staff in preparation for us to move to our new research management system. We will communicate registration details (for those users registered on the existing extranet) nearer the time.
Until the new system is in place, any changes required by registered extranet users will need to be made through the relevant CCF Programme Manager.
The reason for moving from the existing extranet system to a new system is to improve the processing and management of applications and commissioning for all our users.
Details of interim arrangements will be made available by each NIHR programme as appropriate:
i4i (Invention for Innovation)
Programme Grants and Development Grants
Research for Patient Benefit (RfPB)
Policy Research Programme
PRP CCF website content, including information about future calls and competitions, is currently being migrated to new PRP CCF pages on the DH website at
