Research Performance Progress Report (RPPR)

On This Page:

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.

Implementation of the RPPR

NIH began implementing the Federal-wide Research Performance Progress Report (RPPR) in the Fall of 2012. NIH now requires use of the RPPR module in eRA Commons to submit ALL annual progress reports. 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.
