What is a Progress Report?
Most sponsors require interim and final progress reports be submitted reporting objectives and deliverables accomplished. The ORSP Grant Specialist is responsible for reviewing and submitting progress reports to the sponsor on behalf of the investigator.
The Research Performance Progress Report (“RPPR”) is annually required report to document grantee accomplishments and compliance with the terms of the NIH award. A RPPR is mandatory for all SNAP and Fellowship awards for the reporting due date on or after 5/15/2013.
If a RPPR is required, the report is initiated in eRA Commons by the Principal Investigator and thoroughly completed. Please note that detailed budget are not required (unless specified), information is prefilled from eRA Commons where possible and all NIH Compliance and Policy Questions are required to be completed. Upon successful completion of the RPPR, please route the report to your ORSP Grants Specialist for review. If amenable, your Grants Specialist will then submit the RPPR on behalf of the investigator and the institution. For more information regarding the RPPR, see http://grants.nih.gov/grants/rppr/.
