NIH eSubmisson Basics - things to consider when submitting an application to NIH

  • Watch out for form fields required by NIH that are not marked required on federal-wide forms (e.g., credentials for PD/PIs and Organization for all entries on R&R Sr/Key Person Profile form; primary site DUNS on Project/Performance Sites form).
  • Use PDF format for all attachments. Follow PDF Guidelines.
  • Submit early – days, not minutes – to allow time to correct unforeseen errors.
  • Track your submission in the eRA Commons. Email can be unreliable.

NIH eRA Services Unavailable Memorial Day Weekend

All NIH eRA services (including both the eRA Commons and ASSIST) will be completely shut down for system upgrading over the Memorial Day weekend.  The systems will be brought down at 9 p.m. on Friday, May 23 and are expected to be restored to service by Tuesday, May 27 at 7 a.m.

This downtime is necessary to complete the upgrade of all eRA systems so they are Unicode capable. As a result of this upgrade, eRA systems will be able to accept Greek characters and other scientific characters as they appear in the original scientific text submitted by applicants.
