eRA Alert: Please Do Not Work on RPPRs between 7 a.m. and 10 a.m. ET on Thursday, May 25


eRA will be deploying a release Thursday morning, May 25, to update the publications section of eRA Commons to accept preprints (See NIH Guide Notice NOT-OD-17-050).

While eRA Commons users will not experience any downtime during this release, those who are working on Research Performance Progress Reports (RPPR) may experience errors.

Hence, we request users to refrain from working on RPPRs during the 3 hour release window Thursday (7 a.m. to 10 a.m. Eastern Time).


We are sorry for any inconvenience.
