Student Researchers Must Have NIH IDs by October

The National Institutes of Health will soon require student researchers to hold eRA Commons IDs to participate in NIH-funded projects for one person month or more.

Starting in October, NIH will begin rejecting any continuation progress reports (RPPRs and 2590 forms) that do not contain these IDs for graduate and undergraduate students. A notice issued in August 2013 contains details on the policy change.

In preparation for the change, the University of Minnesota’s Sponsored Projects Administration has established more than 1,200 new NIH Commons IDs over the past 10 months for students that departments have identified as fitting the criteria. Principal investigators can visit SPA’s website for instructions on obtaining IDs for students who still need them and for access to both the single- and multiple-ID request forms. Contact Robert Delutri, delut001@umn.edu, at SPA with any questions.
