What is the purpose?

Financial Status Report at NIHRecipients of federal funds are required to complete a Financial Status Report (FSR), currently the SF-269, to report the status of funds for grants or assistance agreements. This module allows grantees to electronically submit a statement of expenditures associated with their grant to the sponsor of the grant via eRA Commons. The schedule for submitting these FSRs is generally specified in the award documents of a grant or contract.

Electronic submission of FSRs via eRA Commons is now required {See NIH Guide Notice NOT-OD-07-078: NIH Requiring Mandatory Use of the Electronic Financial Status Report System in the eRA Commons Beginning October 1, 2007)

Who can use the Financial Status Report module?

eRA Commons users who have an FSR role can access the module via Commons. Users will not see the FSR tab unless they have been assigned this role. A Signing Official or Account Administrator can create an FSR account in the Commons to submit FSRs on behalf of the institution. An account that only has the FSR role will be limited to performing FSR tasks. An account can include multiple roles, including that of FSR.
