Information for institutions and commercial service providers who develop systems to prepare and submit application data to Grants.gov and use eRA information and services to ensure their systems comply with NIH policies and practices.
Organizations interested in creating System-to-System (S2S) solutions to submit grant applications to NIH should first work with Grants.gov to establish S2S connectivity with the Grants.gov system. The Grants.gov website provides the basic information required to get started.
Once the S2S solution is tested with Grants.gov you will want to do further testing with NIH to ensure the solution can successfully submit applications that pass the NIH validations process.
