Termination notices (PHS 416-7) are used to document the termination of appointments to individual and institutional research training programs, including fellowships, training grants, career development awards, and research education awards. A termination notice for each trainee must be submitted immediately upon the termination of his/her support on the award. Awards from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) with the following activity codes may require termination notices.
Steps for submission of the Termination Notice
The Program Director (PD/PI) initiates, reviews, makes any necessary updates to the termination notice, and selects the appropriate Tufts Business Official (BO). Representatives of Central Post-Award are designated as Business Officials (BOs) for the PHS Termination Notices.
After saving the termination notice, PD/PI routes it to the trainee.
Trainee completes the appropriate fields and routes the termination notice back to the PD/PI.
The PD/PI reviews the form, makes any necessary changes, saves and routes to the BO for submission.
BO reviews the termination notice, updates as necessary, and submits to NIH.
