Status for Program Directors/Principal Investigators (PI Role)

The Status module lets those with a PI role review basic aspects of the status of applications sent to the NIH, including pending review, review outcome, pending Advisory Council action, and award status.

Refer to How Does an AOR or SO Check Submission Status? if you hold an SO role.

ClosedUpon entering the Status module, a PI is taken to a landing page with three options:

  • Recent/Pending eSubmissions: Select this heading to view a list of recent or pending electronic submissions of grant applications.
  • List of Applications/Awards: Select this heading to view a list of applications/grants on which the PI user is the contact PI or one of multiple PIs (MPI)
  • Search by Grants.gov Tracking Num: Use this field and the Search button to display information for a specific grant application by tracking number.

Status Screen for PI Users

NOTE: A PI can grant a Commons user with the ASST role access to the Status module. ASST users granted this authority can view the status results as the PI would, however, the ASST user will not have access to the links found in the Action column. Refer to Direct Delegations for information on delegating Status.

Using Status View for PIs

The PI view of Status shows applications and awards search results in either a Grouped View or a Flat View view, with a check mark next the current view. Click the view names to toggle between them.

Grouped View and Flat View buttons in Status for PIs

Flat view shows all applications and awards in a table of search results, while grouped view shows applications awards grouped by the grant family (related awards that share the same application/award ID).

TIP:  Table tools may include the ability to: filter results; show/hide columns; download to Excel or print; specify number of visible records; navigate through tables of data; select and unselect records in bulk; and sort. Table tools are described in Standard Tools for Tables. Not all table tools apply to every table.
