Grant Runner

grantRunner

Grant Runner, the first UW integration with Grants.gov, combines the eGC1 and sponsor forms for some funding opportunities (NIH R01s, R03s and R21s with modular budgets). With the click of a button, OSP can electronically submit your application via Grants.gov to the sponsor.

Many US Research institutes are already using this system-to-system technology to submit applications and retrieve status information via Grants.gov. As of July 2013, the UW has successfully submitted more than 1,380 applications to Grants.gov using Grant Runner.

What You Gain

  • You no longer have to download and fill out the Adobe forms from Grants.gov; you can complete the SF424 directly in SAGE.
  • Grant Runner pre-populates UW institutional codes and some eGC1 information for you in your SF424.
  • Grant Runner automatically checks for common SF424 errors and validates that required fields are complete.
  • You can view Grants.gov tracking number and NIH status directly in your eGC1's History and Comments.

When You Can Use It

  • The sponsor is NIH (National Institutes of Health);
  • SF424 is required;
  • Your application has a modular budget under $250,000; and
  • Your application funding opportunity is a R01, R03, or R21.

Grant Runner Support for New Form-C

NIH is transitioning to an updated form set with a Competition ID of FORMS-C. The new form set is available on Grant Runner and is required for all applications due on or after September 25, 2013.

Some opportunities may allow the use of form B or C depending on the due date. If your due date is on or after September 25, 2013, be sure to use FORMS-C.

Note: A Grant Runner application created with FORMS-B cannot be converted to FORMS-C.
