R01 Applications Slow Grants.gov

In January, Science Careers reported on preparations by researchers and NIH
for the first wave of electronic R01 applications on 5 February.  NIH’s
second deadline for R01 submissions was yesterday (5 June) and it
appears that Grants.gov, the government’s funding portal that receives
electronic grant submissions from all agencies, is reeling under the
traffic load.

NIH’s Electronic Research Administration
Web site has a notice today that "Grants.gov is experiencing some
processing delays." NIH is giving applications with a 5 June time-stamp
on their Grants.gov receipts 2 extra days (to 14 June) to fix errors
and warnings. R01 awards are NIH’s main funding vehicle, accounting for
some 22,000 proposals submitted to NIH in 2006, nearly half of all
competitive proposals the organization received.
