What is the purpose?
The Just-in-Time (JIT) feature of the eRA Commons is available for applications that meet established business criteria and fall within a certain percentile or priority scoring range. The JIT feature allows a Signing Official to electronically submit additional grant application information that qualifies for submission and is requested by the grantor agency.
The additional information is requested after a peer review of a grant application has been completed and prior to funding. Requests may come in the form of eRA-system generated e-mails or contact made directly from the awarding agency via e-mail and/or phone. Applicants should not submit any JIT information until it is requested by the grantor agency.
Note: NIH is the only agency that uses the JIT concept as currently designed in the Commons.
Who can use the Just-in-Time feature?
- Signing Officials from applicant organizations can provide information and submit to the agency.
- Principal Investigators can upload JIT information into the Commons for the Signing Official to submit.
** As with use of all eRA Commons-based features, a Commons username and password are needed to log in.
