Notice of Requirement for Electronic Submission of Just-in-Time
Information and Related Business Process Changes Beginning April 20,


Important Points: Beginning April 20, 2012, applications receiving an
impact score of 40 or less will receive a standard notice and request
for submitting Just-in-time (JIT) information. Notices will be sent via
e-mail from NIH eRA Commons to the Project Director(s)/Principal
Investigator(s) two weeks after release of the impact score indicating
the importance of beginning the JIT process.

Applicants are required to submit their information using the JIT
feature at least 60 days before the applicant’s proposed project period
start date (or sooner if requested by the IC). If the requested JIT
information is not submitted, funding may be delayed. For all
applications, the eRA Commons JIT link will now be opened and available
for submission of JIT information within 24 hours after the impact score
has been released. Previously, the JIT link was only opened for
applications receiving a score within a specific range. Since the JIT
link will be available for all applications, applicants should not rely
on this as an indicator of the need to submit JIT information; instead
they should rely on the JIT notification described above and any
specific requests from NIH staff. Please refer to the notice for
details regarding the information (i.e. current other support,
certifications, etc.) that may be requested at the JIT stage.

As a reminder, a notification request for JIT information is not a
Notice of Award, nor is it an indicator of possible funding by the NIH.
