Just-in-Time (JIT) Policy/Procedures

Just-in-Time (JIT) Concepts used by the National Institutes of Health (NIH)  
The Just-in-Time (JIT) feature of the eRA Commons is available for applications that meet established business criteria and fall within a certain percentile or priority scoring range. The JIT feature allows a Signing Official to electronically submit additional grant application information that qualifies for submission and is requested by the grantor agency.

The additional information is requested after a peer review of a grant application has been completed and prior to funding. Requests may come in the form of eRA-system generated e-mails or contact made directly from the awarding agency via e-mail and/or phone. Applicants should not submit any JIT information until it is requested by the grantor agency.

Note: NIH is the only agency that uses the JIT concept as currently designed in Commons.

Who can use the Just-in-Time feature? *Important: This is a standard notice of request for information to all principal investigators with applications receiving a percentile of 20% or less, regardless of the assigned Institute's pay line. This notice is a request for "Just in Time (JIT)" Information. NIH Institutes and Centers (ICs) have varying pay lines and funding strategies that determine which grants will be funded.

The NIH automatically populates the JIT (Just in Time) link in Commons for applications receiving a percentile of less than 30. Please await instructions from the NIH on whether to complete this information. Finally, JIT requires a Signing Official (SO) at your Institution to send the request to the NIH. Thank you for your cooperation.
