Same grant...two submissions Charles Hathaway 07 Jan 1998 14:36 EST

I would like to hear opinions/insight on the issue of submitting the same
(or essentially the same) research proposal for two simultaneous (or nearly
simultaneous) grant competitions at either the same or different federal
agencies.  For example, is it permissible to submit the same proposal 1) to
NIH and 2) to NSF...or 1) in response to an NIH RFA and 2) as an
unsolicited NIH submission?  In both cases, of course, only one grant would
be accepted if both were awarded.
