Have you ever wanted a system that checks your NIH SBIR/STTR grant application for errors BEFORE you submit it?
ASSIST (Application Submission System & Interface for Submission Tracking) is NIH’s online system for the preparation, submission, and tracking of grant applications through Grants.gov to NIH. Small businesses may now use ASSIST to submit SBIR and STTR grant applications. ASSIST is not required, so small businesses can still apply using the Grants.gov’s downloadable forms method.
To learn more about using ASSIST to submit your SBIR/STTR grant application, attend the webinar on November 4, 2015 from 2:00 to 3:30 pm Eastern Time. During the SBIR/STTR ASSIST webinar, you will learn how to:
- Populate application data from eRA Commons profiles
- Validate your application against NIH business rules prior to submission
- Preview your application images in the NIH format prior to submission
- Track your applications through to eRA Commons to verify agency receipt
- Secure web-based data entry
- Collaboration of multiple user
- Pre-submission validation of many NIH and Grants.gov business rules
- Pre-population of data from eRA Commons profiles
- Pre-submission print/preview of application in NIH format
- Submission status tracking for both Grants.gov and eRA Commons within a single system
- Ability to import subaward budget data from external sources
- Ability to copy application data (excluding attachments) from one announcement to another
Funding opportunity announcements posted in the NIH Guide for Grants & Contracts that allow ASSIST as an option contain an “Apply Online Using ASSIST” button in addition to the “Apply Using Downloadable Forms” button.
