NIH Announcement: RPPR Required for Non-SNAP Progress Reports Beginning October 17, 2014

July 24, 2014 — Please review this important announcement from NIH regarding Research Performance Progress Reports effective October 17, 2014:

RPPR Required for Non-SNAP Progress Reports Beginning October 17, 2014
Posted on June 30, 2014 by NIH Staff

NIH currently requires use of the fed-wide progress reporting format, known as the RPPR (Research Performance Progress Report), to submit progress reports for Streamlined Non-competing Award Process (SNAP), fellowship, and multi-year funded awards. In April we opened the RPPR for use for all Type 5 Non-SNAP progress reports in anticipation of an October 2014 requirement for RPPR use.

Now, it’s official — all type 5 non-SNAP progress reports submitted on or after October 17, 2014 need to be submitted through the RPPR module of eRA Commons. This announcement is part of NIH’s ongoing transition to requiring the use of the federal government-wide RPPR format for all progress reporting.

NIH’s website on the RPPR provides information on the why, what, and when of the RPPR, with a handy table that lets you know for which types of grants the RPPR is now required, and for which it is still optional.
