Not Able to Delete a Citation?

If the work has been reported via NIH Manuscript Submission system (NIHMS) or a Research Performance Progress Report (RPPR), the citation cannot be deleted as an association has been made between an award and the work. Go to the Publication Compliance Status box for the citation and click the Awards information link to determine where the association was made.
