Purpose

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) will be required the Research Performance Progress Report (RPPR) for all type 5 non-SNAP progress reports submitted on or after October 17, 2014.

Background

NIH requires use of the RPPR module to submit progress reports for Streamlined Non-competing Award Process (SNAP), fellowship, and multi-year funded awards.  NIH has piloted the use of the RPPR for non-snap type 5 awards since November 2013, and is now expanding the requirement to use the RPPR to all type 5 non-SNAP awards. Note: NIH continues development of the RPPR for final progress reports and for administrative extensions (Type 4s; e.g., SBIR/STTR Fast-Track Phase II application) and will update the community as progress is made.

Additional information and resources on the RPPR, including the current RPPR Instruction Guide and training archives, can be found at: http://grants.nih.gov/grants/rppr/ .
