Registration Help with Agencies

To request a username for sponsor electronic grant submission/management systems, register with the sponsor per their instructions in the links below. OSP will review and approve upon notification from the sponsor.

If a sponsor does not have a registration link, please go to OSP Electronic User Registration link. Complete the form and a representative from OSP will contact you regarding your registration request. Registration requests should be made as far in advance of proposal submission deadlines as possible, but no later than 3 days prior to electronic submission due dates to ensure registration and allow for on-time proposal submission.

NIH eRA Commons - After September 15, 2021, you will be required to only use your account with two-factor authentication, making your eRA account much more secure, and when this happens, you will no longer be able to log in using your eRA account credentials or your InCommon Federated account credentials. Once you associate your eRA account with your account, the next time you go to the eRA login screen you will simply use the link and enter your new account credentials. Go to the eRA Commons home screen, click LOGIN.GOV, and follow the on-screen prompts. Here is a cheatsheet with detailed steps and screenshots.
