eRA Alert: Hold off on Submitting RPPRs with Publications For Now

Wednesday, May 01, 2019

eRA has received reports that users are unable to save publications for Research Performance Progress Reports (RPPRs).  We are currently working with the National Library of Medicine (NLM) to identify and resolve the issue. We will send an update when more information is available.

In the meantime, we recommend you do not submit any RPPRs that include publications until the issue is resolved.

We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.
