Just-In-Time (JIT) Information

Just-In-Time (JIT) Information

NIH grants policy allows the submission of certain elements of a competing application to be deferred for certain programs and award mechanisms, as referenced in the NIH Grants Policy Statement [see section titled Just-In-Time Procedures under Completing the Pre-Award Process]. These elements, that can be submitted Just-in-Time by the applicant when requested by NIH, include:

  • Other Support
  • Certification of Institutional Review Board (IRB) Approval of the project’s proposed use of human subjects (when applicable)
  • Verification of Institutional Animal Care & Use Committee (IACUC) Approval of the project’s proposed use of live vertebrate animals (when applicable)
  • Evidence of compliance with the education in the protection of human subjects requirement

If a Just-In-Time (“JIT”) submission is required, you will be notified by NIH accordingly which will allow you to generate/upload any necessary documentation into eRA Commons for submission. This JIT request will be sent electronically to the Principal Investigator (PI). When the PI receives the JIT request, a copy should be forwarded immediately to the appropriate Grants Specialist. Once the JIT request is completed, access to submit should be given to the ORSP Grants Specialist. Once access is given, the Grants Specialist should be notified by email that the JIT is ready and access has been granted to complete a final review. If the JIT is amenable for submission, the Grants Specialist will then submit on behalf of the investigator and the institution.
