NIH RPPR Procedures

Research Performance Progress Report (RPPR) Guidelines

NIH requires use of the RPPR module in eRA Commons to submit ALL annual progress reports

Progress reports are required annually to document grantee accomplishments and compliance with terms of award. They describe scientific progress, identify significant changes, report on personnel, and describe plans for the subsequent budget period or year.

The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has mandated that Federal agencies implement a Federal-wide research performance progress report (RPPR) for submission of required annual or other interim performance reporting on research grant and cooperative agreement awards to standardize recipient reporting on Federally-funded research projects.
