NIH has announced that starting January 8th, 2008, the time period for
corrections of errors found in electronic applications will be reduced from
5 business days to 2 business days.  This change will mean that electronic
applications will be considered "on-time" if all of the following criteria
are met:

*        All required registrations must be complete prior to the initial

*        Initial successful submission to Grants.gov must have a timestamp
on/before 5:00 p.m. local time of the applicant organization on the receipt

*        Applicants must correct errors and/or warnings within the two
business days following the receipt date (referred to as the "error
correction window"). 

*        All application corrections must be in response to a
system-identified error/warning (application submissions with additional
changes may be refused). 

*        If final submission is sent after the receipt date, a cover letter
attachment must be included identifying the system-identified
errors/warnings that have been corrected.

Please see the NIH Guide notice for more information:
