Does work being conducted in the United States ever count as a foreign component?

Generally, no. The first step in determining if an element or segment of an NIH-funded project constitutes a foreign component is to evaluate whether the work is being conducted in a foreign country. If not, then it is considered other support and must be reported. In all cases, recipients are encouraged to discuss specifics, in advance, with your Grants Management Officer regarding proper classification of Other Support and Foreign Components.
