Receiving a just-in-time request does not guarantee or indicate in any way whether an applicant will get an award. Details on NIDA's Just-in-time information is found here. This list is not inclusive and NIDA may request additional information on a case-by-case basis. For additional details on Just-in-time, please see NIH Notice NOT-OD-12-101 "Notice of Requirement for Electronic Submission of Just-in-Time Information and Related Business Process Changes Beginning April 20, 2012."
