Frequently Asked Questions

Q:  Does the system interface with any other NIH grants systems?

A:  Yes, the SCS system provides a routine download from the NIH IMPAC system, a seamless interface with QVR, and reporting on both RCDC and ARRA dollars.
Q:  How can I better view my grant portfolio?
A:  The SCS OnDemand application is a grants tracking and reporting system for NIH that easily categorizes the IC’s grants portfolio according to each IC’s defined specific needs.
