The error-correction window (the time allowed after the submission deadline to correct errors/warnings identified by the eRA system) has been temporarily extended to five business days for all electronic applications intended for submission deadlines on/between January 25 and May 7, 2010. This extension will accommodate the upcoming January 25 transition to new applications forms and instructions, part of the implementation of the “Enhancing Peer Review” Initiative.
Since applications submitted on the wrong forms will not be reviewed, the extended error-correction window will provide applicants who submit using incorrect forms or who exceed the new page limits additional time to take the appropriate, corrective actions required to complete the submission process. Detailed instructions on how to re-work an application for successful submission can be found in the Special FAQ section of the NIH eSubmission Web site. The five-day error-correction window is temporary. The regular two-day error correction window will go back into effect for submissions intended for due dates on or after May 8, 2010.
