NIH has developed a system to facilitate the discrete exchange of essential information between NIH and applicant organizations. The “ Commons” is a Web-interface where NIH and the grantee community are able to conduct their extramural research administration business electronically.
Commons allows Principal Investigators to review the current status of all their grant applications and review detailed information associated with their grants. Institution Officials (i.e., Signing Official (SO) or Administrative Official (AO) associated with the institution) can see a summary view of grant applications, review the Notice of Grant Award, and access the Progress Report face page.
Please contact your Pre-Award Specialist if you would like a Commons account.
Once the account has been requested, the individual will receive an email (within 48 hours) from the eRA Commons System Administrator containing the user login and password.
