"Just-In-Time" is a procedure used by NIH to postpone the collection of certain information normally required for all competitive proposals. The information for applications with a likelihood of funding is submitted “just-in-time” for awards
to be made.
This delayed exchange of information significantly relieves the administrative burden for the 75% to 80% of applicants who will not receive an award. In addition, the information that is exchanged "just-in-time" for award will be current, rather than several months old (which often necessitates a request for updated information).
At this time NIH e-mails a request for just-in-time information to the PI and OGC. A link to "JIT" in the PI's NIH eRA commons account is not a request for information.
