The eRA Commons is an online interface where signing officials, principal investigators, trainees, and post-docs at institutions/organizations can access and share administrative information relating to research grants.
Every prospective NIH investigator should be registered by OSP for a personal Commons account. Once registered, each individual would log into the system and complete all personal data. Many times, this information is used to provide NIH representatives with information that may support one’s application.
Receipt of results, Just in Time information (JIT), progress reports (RPPR) and final reports including the invention statement are managed via the Commons.
For more information, visit the eRA Commons website.
