Revamped eRA Website launched

The newly revamped eRA Website has launched. It is an information gateway for applicants, grantees, and reviewers to navigate eRA Modules such as eRA Commons, IAR, and ASSIST. It includes at-a-glance screenshots, new categories of information, and updated 'how-to' content.

The link you are using to access eRA Commons may be outdated. Please do not use a search engine (i.e. Google, Bing) to access eRA Commons.

If you are using a previously bookmarked link, please update the link with the most recent URL. The correct URL is provided: public.era.nih.gov/commons
(Do not include www. or https://)

Effective October 2019

UAH  implemented the Kuali Research eRA system for the submission of all proposals and the administration of awards and sub-awards. Why Kuali?

The Office of Sponsored Programs (OSP) is your starting point for doing business with UAH faculty, research staff, and students.
OSP will prepare/process the following:

• Teaming Agreement • Non-Disclosure Agreement • Equipment/Facility Use Agreement • Proposal Preparation

• Review/negotiate/execute all contract documents • Letters of Support/Intent • Certifications and Representations

• Notary support available, contact Mirael Parker  256-824-2656

Let Us Work With You!

OSP is your first stop in the management of projects and contracts. We offer training on a number of different proposal processes and will work with you to ease the initial agreement discussions and then maintain compliance. Get started
