We understand that some applicants are experiencing issues submitting grant applications through Grants.gov to NIH. Despite these issues, NIH has received a steady stream of applications both yesterday and today. NIH does not plan on extending today’s R01 deadline since the issues experienced are not affecting the majority of applications.
If you are experiencing system issues that threaten your on-time submission, please follow our standard system issue policy documented at http://grants.nih.gov/grants/ElectronicReceipt/support.htm#guidelines and in the recent reminder notice (NOT-OD-13-054).
A couple items to keep in mind:
As long as we can verify that a system issue impeded the timely submission of your application and you work diligently to complete the process, you will not be penalized for these issues beyond your control.
