What is a multi-year funded (MYF) award?
A multi-year funded (MYF) award is one in which the project period and budget period are the same and are longer than one year, and the award is funded from a single appropriation. A no-cost extension of an existing grant does not constitute multi-year funding. Some examples of activity codes that NIH traditionally uses for multi-year funding awards are C06, DP2, DP3, DP4, R15, R55, RC3, RC4, RF1, UA5, UC4, UC6, and UF1.
How do I submit a MYF Progress Report?
Progress reports for MYF awards have transitioned from the PHS 2590 Forms to the federal-wide Research Performance Progress Report (RPPR). For instructions of submitting and RPPR, see the NIH and Other PHS Agency Research Performance Instruction Guide.
The RPPR must be submitted by a Signing Official (SO), or a PD/PI with delegated authority from the SO to submit a progress report. Information about SO delegation of authority to a PD/PI to submit a progress report appears in the eSNAP User Guide under Section 2. Delegating Authority (http://era.nih.gov/docs/eSNAP_UG_v18.104.22.168_041210.pdf).
When are RPPRs for MYF awards due?
RPPRs for MYF awards are due annually on or before the anniversary of the budget/project period start date of the award. NIH will send an email notification to the PD/PI two months before the anniversary of the award requesting that the MYF RPPR be submitted. These instructions may represent a change from previous instructions (e.g., in the Funding Opportunity Announcement); these instructions supersede any previous instructions.
Is an RPPR required during a no-cost extension?
No, NIH does not require an RPPR is during a no-cost extension.
What is the reporting period for a MYF RPPR?
The reporting period for a MYF RPPR is the calendar year preceding the anniversary date of the RPPR. For example, if an award is made on 04/01/2013, the MYF RPPR is due on or before 04/01/2014, and should report on the activities performed under the award between 04/01/2013 and 03/31/2014. The subsequent year the MYF RPPR would be due 04/01/2015, and should report on the activities performed under the award between 04/01/2014 and 03/31/2015.
What will happen after an MYF RPPR is submitted?
Upon submission of the RPPR through the eRA Commons, the awarding IC will be notified of the submission via e-mail. The IC Program and Grants Management Officials will review the report and request any additional information as appropriate.
Will there be any communication back to the recipient or PD/PI that the RPPR has been accepted?
Not routinely. As noted above, there may be some follow-up communication if additional information is needed. However, unless follow-up is needed for additional information, the RPPR is considered complete and accepted.
