Change in one of the validations on the SF424 R&R detailed budget form
If you are preparing budgets for the upcoming NIH deadlines, you may encounter a new validation error on the SF 424 R&R* detailed budget form in eResearch. You now must enter data into the Base Salary field of Section A. Senior/Key Person (see picture below). The base salary can no longer be left blank, even if an agency (NIH, for example) does not require. The good news is that there is a workaround!
