Summary: NIH, AHRQ and NIOSH ERROR CORRECTION WINDOW ELIMINATED
NIH has decided to eliminate the error correction window from the electronic grant application
submission process. This change takes effect for submission deadlines on January 25, 2011 and beyond
Applicants will no longer have time after the deadline to address NIH systemidentified errors/warnings
in their applications. However, applicants still will have the twobusinessday application viewing
window to view their assembled application image before the deadline. The viewing window is an
applicant's one chance to view his or her grant application just as the NIH reviewers will see it.
NIH encourages applicants to submit early in order to view their application (and correct any
errors/warnings) prior to the deadline.
Applications submitted after the deadline, or applications with errors and/or warnings corrected after
the deadline, will be subject to the NIH late policy and may not be reviewed.
NIH is committed to assisting applicants through this transition. The Applying Electronically website
provides resources to assist the community through the application process. A recent eRA "Items of
Interest" email highlight recommended "checks" to make before submitting your application.
Applicants are encouraged to sign up for eRA Commons email updates if they do not receive them
