eRA Enhancements- New Feature for eRA Commons

Electronic submission of Change of Institution (Type 7) applications

Important Points: This process allows an institution to transfer an
active grant to another institution via eRA Commons.

There are two parts to the Change of Institution submission:

(1) The institution holding the grant must complete a Relinquishing
Statement through eRA Commons that states it is giving up the grant and
identifies the receiving institution.

(2) The receiving institution must submit an application via using the Parent Funding Opportunity Announcement listed at

It is an open pilot, meaning that you have the choice to use the
electronic process or the traditional paper process. NIH indicated that
a Guide Notice will be issued.
