 eRA Alert: Error Correction Window Extended for All Electronic Applications
with Submission Deadlines through May 1, 2009

April 24, 2009


NIH and its partners 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.  


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.
