Would you like to:Access the online Pre-Award Intake Form (PAIF)
Request NIH Commons access
All requests require the PI NetID and Lead Unit number. Users may log in as an individual (they will create and acess the form using their NetID) or as a group (they will create and access the form using the department NetID). Adding emails allows additional people to receive all PAIF-generated emails, including group email addresses. However, adding a person via an email address will not allow that person to access the form (and attachments) after submission. We encourage you, especially for RUSH transactions, to add your PC or AN to enable him/her to receive notifications as soon as possible.
Requirements by Request Type
- Proposal (requires a completed PIF form, available here)
- Proposal Update
- NIH Progress Report
- Incremental Funding Request (formerly Non-Competitive Continuation)
- Funded Agreement
- Subaward (requires PI approval)
- License/Data Use
- Material Transfer
- Other Unfunded Agreements
- Re-Grants (requires PI approval)
Access requests will require name, email, and NIH Commons role.
**As of 3/26/18, NSF Fastlane requests will no longer be submitted via the PAIF. New users will be able to register directly with NSF through Research.gov via this link: https://www.research.gov/accountmgmt/#/registration .
