Updates to NIH Policy on ESI Application Status

Wednesday, February 20, 2019
When NIH approves ESI extension requests or a PI updates their degree information in their eRA Commons personal profile after application submission, the ESI status for the PI will be updated once the summary statement is released. When an ESI-eligible application is awarded and the PD/PI has an R01 or R01-equivalent application pending, the ESI status of the pending application will be updated after release of the summary statement to indicate the application is no longer ESI-eligible. See NOT-OD-19-072 for reference.
