7. Electronic Grant Submission Update
The NIH has transitioned the majority of its mechanisms to the electronic application submission process via grants.gov. The majority of Columbia University electronic submissions use the InfoEd System.
In order to avoid delays in grant submissions and possible non-submissions because of failure to meet the strict electronic deadlines, Columbia University Research Administration has set the internal deadline for 100% completion of grant applications as 9am, 5 full business days prior to the due date (e.g., a NIH grant deadline Friday, March 16 at 5pm had a Research Administration deadline of Friday, March 9 at 9am). Although it is mandatory to meet this minimum deadline date, having grant applications completed prior to this internal deadline is strongly encouraged. In order to prepare for submissions, please notify Dr. Elaine Larson (Associate Dean for Research) and Kristine Kulage (Director, Office of Research Resources) as soon as possible when you anticipate a future grant submission.
