All Senior/Key Personnel Required to Have A Commons ID Listed on Applications for Due Dates on Or After January 25, 2022


For due dates on or after January 25, 2022, NIH, AHRQ, FDA, and ORD/VA are targeting a requirement that all individuals listed on the R&R Senior/Key Person Profile (Expanded) Form have an eRA Commons username (Commons ID) listed on grant applications. Extension of the existing eRA Commons ID requirement to include all senior/key personnel will facilitate better data collection for individuals contributing to federally funded research as well as assist in disambiguating data on applications and facilitating the identification of conflicts of interest in peer review.

To get applicants accustomed to this change, applicants will receive a warning if a valid eRA Commons username is not provided for senior/key Personnel.
