How do i get started

How do I get started?

  • Get an NIH eCommons PI account established with ORD

  • Download PureEdge Software (pc). Mac Users can use either Citrix Server or VirtualPC.

  • Go to Grants.gov and identify a Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA aka PA or RFA) that fits your science.

    • What about investigator-initiated science?

      • There are Generic R03/R21 FOAs on the website. These are linked to appropriate forms.

Pre-filled from announcement


Now what

Now what?

  • As per NIH 398 applications, fill in the forms that are application appropriate. The forms may have new names but the information is about the same.

  • Allow ample time - Just to fill in the forms will take 40 person-hours excluding scientific presentation.

  • Each form must be attached each time an application is submitted.

  • Budget - In form set are forms for detailed budget. However, you can still use NIH’s Modular Budget if total direct costs are < $250K/year.

PHS 398 Research Plan


Electronic grant submissions via grants what pi s need to know

Component: PHS 398 Research Plan

  • Separate PDF attachments for each section (designed to maximize benefits of system validations & to accommodate bookmarking of the image)

  • Same formatting requirements in the PHS398 continue here—margins, page limits, etc

  • Appendix Material

    • Allows up to 10 separate attachments

    • Will be stored separately in the eRA Grant Folder, not as a part of the main application grant image

    • Will be accessible to appropriate NIH staff and peer reviewers

    • New!Effective for the May 10, 2006 submission dates and beyond, use links to on-line journalsfor publication references when available. See Guide Notice: http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/notice-files/NOT-OD-06-051.html

Component: PHS 398 Research Plan—Helpful Hints

  • Create as a single document using any word processing software. Separate only at the end before uploading

  • Do not include headers or footers

  • Do include a section heading as part of the text; i.e., Specific Aims, Background & Significance


Submitting your grant

Submitting your grant

  • PI’s no longer submit grants to NIH or other Federal Agencies, this is now ORD’s responsibility.

  • Completed applications must be forwarded to ORD 9 working days prior to NIH deadline, so ORD can finalize paperwork and transmit on your behalf.

Most Common Errors

  • Missing PI’s Commons User ID on the Senior/Key Person form, “Credential” field

  • PDF issues

    • NIH only accepts attachments in PureEdge or PDF format. Do not submit attachments in other formats such as Microsoft Word, Word Perfect, etc.

    • Do not put special characters in file names.

    • Disable all security features in the PDF document.

    • Do not send PDF documents with editable fields (fields that can be changed).


Things to think about

Things to think about

  • Can your computer handle this task? Do you have the software necessary to generate pdf’s? If you have secretarial support, how will files be shared?

  • Time management becomes critical. Do not wait until the last minute to start your application.

  • Submission of your grant is no longer in your control. Allow time to work with ORD to complete your grant in a stress-free manner.

  • The devil is in the details! There are a lot of details in this new process that need your attention.

  • Be prepared for mistakes. They are inevitable.
