Reminder to Review Accuracy of Grant Information Before October 3, 2022


We make data on all funded NIH grants available to the public on the RePORT website. One of the ways we provide information is by school/department, which you can explore using the Awards by Location feature. Because of inconsistencies in the way information on department and school names are provided in grant applications, recipient officials may want to make changes in how that information is reflected in NIH systems. See this Nexus post for more on how and why schools and departments are assigned to NIH grants.

NIH’s fiscal year ends on September 30, 2022, so now is the time for Signing Officials to verify the accuracy of their grant assignments to departments or components within institutions of higher education using the Grant Re-assign function in eRA Commons. Since the data in these files are “frozen” annually to ensure the reporting files produce consistent and meaningful results, any corrections must be made by 8:00 PM EDT on Monday, October 3, 2022 to be reflected in NIH annual reports.

NIH guide Notice NOT-OD-22-194 includes additional information on what Authorized Organization Representatives or Signing Officials should know, how to verify information, making corrections, and more.
