eRA Alert: ASSIST Users Currently Experiencing An Issue with the Modular Budget Form

Thursday, August 30, 2018

Users have reported an issue with the Modular Budget form in ASSIST (Application Submission System & Interface for Submission Tracking). When users go to add a second budget period and click the SAVE, RELEASE, or CANCEL buttons, they are receiving an error message that the action cannot be completed and that they should contact the eRA Service Desk.

We plan to fix the issue on Tuesday, September 4, 2018.   

If you feel this issue may impinge on your ability to submit an application in a timely manner, please refer to the Dealing with System Issues web page for guidance.
