    research systems they may have to register you.

    you will receive throughout the entire process.

    1-800-673-6188Availability (recording)
    1-800-437-7408

21
Uploading Documents into Fastlane
  • FastLane supports file uploads in a variety of
    formats including Word, WordPerfect, PostScript
    and TeX (MiKTeX1.20e).
  • These files are converted into PDF and displayed
    back to the user for their acceptance.

22
Helpful Hint
  • NSFs FastLane system uses the file extension
    (the part of the file name after the period) to
    determine the file format in order to properly
    interpret the information. If your software does
    not automatically append an extension, ensure
    that you add the appropriate one when saving the
    file.

23
NIH eRA Commons
  • NIH eRA Commons is a POST submission service.
  • Contact your CA for your user ID.
  • You will receive your password via email and will
    need to follow that link to update your P.I.
    profile
  • Make sure all info on profile is updated and
    accurate. This prevents warnings at the proposal
    stage.

eRA Commons Continued
  • Use this site for post proposal tracking for NIH.
  • Commons will create a PDF copy of your
    application package for you to download for your
    records

    Commons is correct within 2 days of the
    applications availability.
