Issued by

National Institutes of Health (NIH)

Purpose

As of October 17, 2014, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) requires grantees to submit all type 5 progress reports using the Research Performance Progress Report (RPPR) module in eRA Commons.   Annual progress reports submitted in any format other than the RPPR will not be processed by the NIH and will require resubmission through the RPPR.  

This notice supersedes all references to the use of the PHS 2590 for annual non-competing continuation progress reports in Notices of Award.  

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: https://grants.nih.gov/grants/rppr/.
