Progress reports are required annually to document grantee accomplishments and compliance with the terms of the award. They describe progress made during the reporting period, identify significant changes, report on personnel and describe plans for the subsequent budget year. The Research Performance Progress Report (RPPR) format is now mandated to standardize reporting on all federally-funded projects. Beginning with the 2015 progress report due date and beyond, IRACDA grantees are to submit annual noncompeting progress reports using the RPPR instead of the former PHS 2590.
The RPPR structure includes the following components:
Follow the instructions to complete each component using the NIH Research Performance Progress Report (RPPR) Instruction Guide [PDF, 2.4 MB].
The progress report must provide information on the implementation and outcome of the proposed career development program, any modifications to the program as originally proposed and details about the program outcomes. Grantees may find a table such as this one [PDF, 162KB] helpful for organizing the outcomes. The following should be included in the annual progress report::
Large tables and figures as well as the summary of annual evaluation report (do not send the entire report) should be included in the appendix.
