NIH projects are intended to cut paperwork

To reduce grant application paperwork, the National Institutes of Health has begun two digital signature pilots.

Digital Signature Trust Co. of Salt Lake City is the contractor under the General Services Administration's Access Certificates for Electronic Services program.

Peter Alterman, director of operations for the NIH Office of Extramural Research, said Digital Signature understood the requirements and had the best approach to implementation.

The company will help NIH create and distribute forms for the committee management system that generates lists of outside scientists to review grant applications.
