Enhancements and Validations in Development

Important:  We post our plans for upcoming enhancement and fixes well in advance of their delivery to help system-to-system service providers plan for their own development efforts. We try our best to keep these documents current as our plans evolve. Please keep in mind that these are *draft* documents and are subject to change at any time. 



  • Working towards opening up ASSIST to support single-project applications in 2015 (NOT-OD-15-044)
    • Targeting R01, U01 and Career Development (Ks, excluding KM1 and K12) activity codes in April 2015
  • Migrating single-project validations to the Submission Validation Service (SVS) over several code releases
    • Expect SVS to be used to validate production applications when ASSIST is made available for single-project applications
    • Targeting SVS support for R01, U01 and Career Development (Ks, excluding KM1 and K12) in April 2015
