The availability of the Just-In-Time (JIT) link in the eRA Commons or the receipt of an email JIT request should NOT be interpreted as an indicator of award. JIT request e-mails are sent automatically to principal investigators with grant applications receiving an impact score of 40 or less, regardless of the payline of the particular NIH institute that received your grant application. (NIH institutes and centers have varying pay lines and funding strategies that determine which grants will be funded.)
Timely submission of the requested information will enable NIH staff to expedite an award should an application be identified for funding. NIH institute staff will contact you if they have not received the requested JIT information or if additional information is required. If you have additional questions, we encourage you contact the grants management specialist or program officer assigned to your application.
