eRA Alert: System Issue Affecting Submissions to NIH
Monday, September 8, 2014
The NIH eRA team is seeing an unusually high number of applications encountering ‘System Issues’ upon submission . If you encounter a system issue that impacts your ability to submit on time, please refrain from submitting again and follow our standard Guidelines for Applicants Experiencing System Issues for guidance.
The NIH eRA Production Support team is proactively identifying and reprocessing applications that encounter system issues. Applications are typically identified and reprocessed within 2 hours of submission. Due to this reprocessing, you may see subsequent email notifications for the same application. You will know the application has reprocessed successfully if you receive a notification indicating you should check your application in eRA Commons, you can access a list of errors/warnings in eRA Commons for your submission or if you can access your application image in eRA Commons.
We are working to identify and address the cause of the issue as soon as possible. We will provide updated information as soon as possible.
We are sorry for any inconvenience it may cause.
