NIH updates grants submission client

The National Institutes of Health has upgraded its client for electronically checking grant information by way of using the Electronic Business Extensible Markup Language (EbXML), according to a posting on the EbXML Forum blog.

The NIH Office of Extramural Research upgraded the client, which is designed to allow external systems interact with NIH's eReceipts Exchange servers through a Web service interface. This version should use less memory and run more quickly.

The new S2Sclient uses version 5 of the open source Tomcat application server software and requires version 1.5 of the Java Development Kit.

In February, NIH started requiring all major grant proposals be submitted electronically. NIH offers a set of Web services for querying the status of grant applications, verifying person information details, updating person information details and requesting validation response messages.
