Registering for eRA Commons (NIH) and FastLane (NSF)

Both NIH and NSF, which have proprietary electronic proposal submission systems, require that investigators register in their respective systems prior to submission of proposals. For both systems, the registration must be requested of the agency by an authorized representative from OSPA using information provided by the investigator.

To register in NIH eCommons or NSF FastLane, complete the NIH eRA Commons or FastLane registration form by creating a new submission under the OSPA section of the Research Portal and submit as instructed.
