Grants Closeout (eRA Commons)
What is the purpose?
Grants Closeout is a feature within eRA Commons that allows a grantee to electronically file the information necessary to complete grant closeout requirements. It interfaces with the Closeout system used by Agency staff to track and monitor this business process.
What are the features of Grant Closeout?
- Grantee institutions can track grants that are in closeout status
- Institutions can use the module to submit reports required for closeout. Each required report can be submitted independently; however, closeout is not complete until all reports have been submitted and accepted by the Awarding Office.
- The Financial Status Report (FSR) portion of Closeout actually links the external user to the separate FSR system within the eRA Commons
What is the benefit?
The Grant Closeout feature keeps track of the multiple reports needed to close out a grant and reminds grantees of the importance of providing the Federal Government with accurate and timely information.
