Notice Number: NOT-OD-09-087
Update: The following update relating to this announcement has been issued:
Release Date: April 24, 2009
National Institutes of Health (NIH), http://www.nih.gov
Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ), http://www.ahrq.gov/
Center for Disease Control and Prevention/National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, (CDC/NIOSH) http://www.cdc.gov/niosh/
U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), http://www.fda.gov
This notice supersedes NOT-OD-08-018.
NIH/AHRQ/CDC (NIOSH)/ and FDA will extend the electronic application error correction window (the time allowed after the submission deadline to correct errors/warnings identified by the eRA system) to five days for those opportunities with submission dates from April 21, 2009 through May 1, 2009. Although Grants.gov has not exceeded their 48 hour processing target for the vast majority of application submissions, we understand that many applicants will not have an opportunity to see the results of their submission in eRA Commons before the normal two-day error correction window elapses. This extension should allow applicants sufficient time to correct system identified errors or warnings following on-time submission.
Grants.gov does not guarantee that applications will be processed and made available to agencies in the order that they are submitted. Please allow in-progress submissions to complete prior to making further submissions to address eRA-identified errors/warnings to ensure your most recent submission is reflected in eRA Commons.
Remember: If you experience problems with Grants.gov that threaten the timely submission of your grant application or the ability to obtain the tracking number and timestamp necessary to verify on-time submission:
Please note that the five day correction window is temporary – we will return to the normal two-day window on Monday, May 4, 2009. Grants.gov is working on performance enhancing changes that should improve their system’s ability to process applications in a timely, efficient manner. We will continue to closely monitor the situation at Grants.gov and will make further adjustments as necessary to protect our applicants’ ability to submit on-time.
