NIH to Require eRA Commons IDs for Graduate and Undergraduate Students, August 6, 2013
NIH is phasing in a new policy that requires graduate and undergraduate students working on NIH-funded projects to set up eRA Commons IDs.
The implementation will begin as follows:
- August 15, 2013: Graduate and undergraduate students are encouraged to start establishing eRA Commons accounts.
- October 18, 2013: The PHS 2590 and Research Performance Progress Reports (RPPR) forms will start prompting for this information. Warnings will also appear in eRA Commons screens to alert students that they need to complete their IDs.
- October 2014: RPPRs must have eRA Commons IDs for graduate and undergraduate students or the reports won't be accepted by NIH.
