Now that we are in the closing stretch of the fiscal year, we remind research institution officials to review whether your awarded grants are accurately assigned to the correct department/school within eRA Commons. This ensures that the grants are reported correctly in tools like RePORT for year-end reporting, and displayed under the right division/school in eRA Commons. On October 9, data for the government’s fiscal year will be frozen, and cannot subsequently be changed in our year end reports, so we encourage you to review your information now and avoid the end-of-fiscal-year rush.
Signing Officials at institutions of higher education can make corrections and update the reassignment of a grant to the correct division/department directly in eRA Commons (see steps to Reassign Grant). Once the data is updated in eRA Commons, it appears immediately on the eRA Commons Status screen as well as on the Reassign Grants screen. Updated data will be reflected in RePORT, when the data is refreshed weekly.
