Users have reported an issue with the Modular Budget form in ASSIST (Application Submission System & Interface for Submission Tracking). When users go to add a second budget period and click the SAVE, RELEASE, or CANCEL buttons, they are receiving an error message that the action cannot be completed and that they should contact the eRA Service Desk.
As part of the recent release of the Human Subjects System (HSS) functionality, eRA provided an email notification to Signing Officials (SOs) when the PD/PI changed the submission status for a post-submission study record request to ‘ready for submission.’
It is ironic that as I write this, I am celebrating four amazing years of marriage to my wife. And every year on this day I start singing the Flintstones Anniversary song to the tune of the William Tell Overture…
Happy Anniversary Haaappy Anniversary
The August 8 ASSIST release introduced an issue with viewing budget forms in ASSIST when an application is in a ‘Ready for Submission’ status. We will be releasing a fix for this issue on Wednesday, September 12, 2018. This issue does not impact the ability to submit applications.
A new release of the Human Subjects System (HSS) is scheduled for August 8, 2018. The new release will include the following features and functionality:
- Signing officials (SOs) will receive an email when the PD/PI changes the submission status for a post-submission request to ‘ready for submission.’
An ASSIST release scheduled for tomorrow, Wednesday, August 8, will result in some changes to how users log in and log out of ASSIST.
Logging Into ASSIST
The new Human Subjects System (HSS) leverages much of the functionality of ASSIST, including sharing screens and notification processes. We have been made aware that an automated message associated with Manage Access is incorrectly being sent to Principal Investigators (PIs).
This is to remind you that on Saturday, June 9, 2018, eRA is launching the Human Subjects System (HSS). This system will replace the Inclusion Management System (IMS), which is being retired on the same day. HSS is a shared system that will enable grant applicants and recipients to electronically report and update their data on human subjects and clinical trials to NIH; and NIH agency staff to monitor and manage the data.
