If your application receives a fundable score, NIH will request Just In Time (JIT) information that includes other support for key personnel, IRB (Human subjects) approvals and training, IACUC (Animal subjects) approval. JIT can be requested via eRA Commons or directly from your grants management specialist. Please contact your officer when you have completed the requested information.


Once your grant is funded OSP will request a detailed budget that corresponds with the Notice of Grant Award. At this time, you will need to make sure that all approvals are met and up-to-date.
