eRA system implementation is currently underway and will be rolled out in
phases by Department and Proposal Type.
Phase 1: Proposal
Development – NIH Application Submissions
All NIH application submissions are now required to be submitted via InfoEd eRA, with some minor exceptions.
When: NIH Cycle 3 submission period, ending November 2013
Phase 2: Electronic
Status: Phase Two is underway.
Details: Phase Two is focusing on using InfoEd eRA for all routing needs, for all departments.
All departments routing grants and contracts.
When: To be completed by December 31, 2014.
Proposal Development Rollout
Status: We are preparing for this significant transition with additional
training sessions, walk-in hours at computer labs, and webinars to facilitate
efficient routing and high quality submissions.
Details: In Phase 3 centers and schools preparing NIH proposals are to be
built and routed in PD.
The helpful pre-populated and
standardized institutional information is formatted within PD. All those involved with the proposal PIs, administrators and OGC
have viewing and editing options accordingly to their access rights. Conflict of Interest (COI) compliance is displayed immediately
when key personnel are added to the budget to provide an advanced notice of
their status. Grants.Gov (G.G) validations
can be run prior to submission to check for most errors and warnings and the
assembled proposal is viewable for quality control. Submission statuses using S2S are displayed faster than with
former PDF versions along with G.G identification number eliminating numerous
involved: Centers, departments and
schools preparing NIH research proposals, the Office of Grants and Contracts along
with Electronic Research Administration.
When: By November 2014.
