NIH "login.gov" account signup required by Sep 15 to use services
The Federal Government is rolling out a centralized portal, login.gov, to provide secure access to all government agencies through a single username/password with two-factor authentication.
NIH reviewers were required in December 2020 to establish login.gov accounts. Users of eRA Commons, ASSIST, and other NIH services (including NIH RePORTER) will need to set up a login.gov account by September 15, 2021.
Current eRA and ASSIST accounts can be linked to new login.gov accounts. See NIH Notice NOT-OD-21-040 and login.gov for more information and instructions on how to set up an account.
