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.

NIH is providing the Federal Demonstration Partnership (FDP) institutions, of which Vanderbilt is one, with early access to the RPPR module in eRA Commons.  During the initial pilot and early access phase, the RPPR may be used for most progress reports under the Streamlined Non-Competing Award Process (SNAP) authorities and for individual fellowships.  NIH plans to mandate the use of the RPPR in early 2013. 

In the coming months, OSP will work with those departments and investigators who would like to begin using the new process.  For assistance please contact your Sponsored Programs Specialist and view our website at OSP: Research Performance Progress Report (RPPR)
