If you are a signing official for an organization, you can use the Status module to select one of a variety of search screens that let you find specific applications or awards. Search results appear in a table; to learn about the tools that appear above the search results table, see Standard Tools for Tables.
With the general search, you can search on the various parts of the award number, including type, activity code, IC, serial number, support year, and suffix; see Deciphering NIH Application/Grant Numbers. You can also search by PD/PI name, budget start and end dates, application status, and grants.gov number.
As an alternative to the award number, you can search on Project Number. If you are searching for a contract project, type all or part of the contract number in the Project Number field, which appears below the six award number fields.
NOTE: Use either the six award number fields OR use the Project Number field; do not use both simultaneously because each searches a different type of numbering system and no results will appear when they are used together.
The following screen appears.
Figure 15: General search criteria in Status
Enter criteria and click Search.
In the Status Results, click the Application/Award ID to see the Status Information screen for the award, and click its three-dot ellipsis menu for actions that can be performed on the award. See Sample Search Results below.
NOTE: The Status Result - General Search screen differs from the results displayed for PI users. Refer to Status for Program Directors/Principal Investigators (PI Role) for more information.

This search option simply redirects you to the search screen in the ASSIST module, where you can start a new application or find and update an existing application. In ASSIST, click the HSS Applications checkbox to find any human subjects applications with required post submissions. Enter other search criteria, such as the PI name, to narrow the search results further. Consult the ASSIST help for help with the ASSIST search screen.
NOTE: For information on working with table tools to filter results, choose visible columns, download/print, limit rows per page, or navigate through pages of results, see Standard Tools for Tables.
