eRA Update: eRA Commons is Back Online and Available
Tuesday, November 22, 2011
The eRA technical team working with other NIH teams have reported the
problem with the central NIH Log-in has been resolved; as a result, eRA
Commons is currently available for use.
We will continue to monitor the situation closely.
Per the NIH Guide Notice NOT-OD-12-018
Due to a problem that disrupted eRA Commons availability this week,
November 21, 22 and 23 submission deadlines will be extended to Monday,
November 28. This change is being made to accommodate applicants who
were unable to track their applications in the eRA Commons and view
their assembled application image or their electronic submission errors
and warnings due to the unavailability of the eRA Commons system today.
