Lost in the (e)Mail Doesn’t Happen if Your Profile Is Current


Is your eRA Commons account up-to-date—particularly your email address?

On May 25, 2012, the Center for Scientific Review began using eRA Commons to communicate important information about your application. Instead of that letter you use to receive in the mail, you will now receive an email alerting you to check your Commons account for receipt and referral issues such as:

  • Additional information is needed to assign your application to the appropriate review group or NIH institute or center for further consideration.
  • Your request for review in a specific institute or center cannot be honored.
  • Your application is not in compliance with NIH policy.

So now, more than ever, organizations, principal investigators, and fellows need to keep their eRA Commons account and profile current. 

These new procedures are in keeping with NIH’s efforts to go paperless. For more information on this topic, see NOT-OD-12-108.
