After submitting an application, you have a two business day application viewing window to check the application and revise it. Your application automatically moves forward to agency staff for further processing after the application viewing window has elapsed unless you explicitly "reject" the application in eRA Commons. For administrative supplements, this two day viewing window can be skipped; see Bypassing the 2-Business-Day Application Viewing Window for Administrative Supplements.
Also see Submit, Track and View Your Application.
All signing officials can verify the status of the applications that have been submitted for their organization utilizing eRA Commons.
Searching for Recent/Pending eSubmissions
Log into eRA Commons with an SO account.
On the next screen, enter search criteria and click the Search button. Search criteria options are:
- Accession Number: A unique value assigned to applications before an NIH grant number is assigned.
- Grants.gov Tracking # A value is assigned by Grants.gov when the application is electronically submitted.
- eSubmission Status (All, Pending Verification, or Rejected)
- Received Date Enter a range of dates for the received date using the “From” and “To” fields.
Either enter the date(s) manually in the MM/DD/YYYY format or by selecting from the calendar icon
In the search results, you can find links for actions, such as showing prior errors, in the three-dot ellipsis menu next to the Award/Application ID. Also see Status Search for SOs.
