The NIH eRA Commons is a web-based system that allows NIH extramural grantee organizations, grantees, and the public to receive and transmit information electronically about the administration of research. The eRA Commons website can be found at https://commons.era.nih.gov/commons/.
To be able to use the NIH eRA Commons you must be registered as a user. Contact the UND Research Development & Compliance Office for information about registering at 777-2890.
The NIH eRA Commons is organized into sections. Depending upon the privileges/roles granted to you, you may view and access the following sections:
The Account Administration section lets institution officials create and manage user accounts associated with the institution.
The Institution Profile (IPF) section lets institution officials maintain the institution information on file at the NIH, including the organizational hierarchy.
The Personal Profile (PPF) section lets users maintain their personal information on file at the NIH (including information such as degrees, publications, and contact information).
This section lets Principal Investigators (PIs) review the current status of all their grant applications and review detailed information associated with the grant. Signing Officials (SOs) or Administrative Officials (AOs) associated with the institution are able to see a summary view of grant applications, review Notices of Grant Award, and access Progress Report face pages.
The electronic Streamlined Non-competing Award Process (eSNAP) section lets extramural grantee institutions submit electronic versions of Type 5 (non-competitive) progress reports to the grants management community.
The Internet Assisted Review (IAR) section lets reviewers submit critiques of grant applications and view each other's reviews before the actual meeting. Scientific Review Administrators (SRAs) and Grants Technical Assistants (GTAs) are able to view all critiques and generate preliminary score reports and pre-summary statement bodies.
The Financial Status Report (FSR) is a statement of expenditures sent to the sponsor of a grant or contract. This section lets Grant and Contract Accounting (GCA) prepare and submit an FSR on behalf of the Principal Investigator (PI).
The electronic Trainee Activities System (X-Train) section lets Program Directors (PDs) of grantee institutions create and update trainee appointments.
