New F-RPPR Available on eRA Commons
As you may know, NIH has created a new module for the online completion and submission of Final Research Performance Progress Reports (F-RPPRs). While the F-RPPR and Annual RPPRs are similar, one notable difference is that you access the F-RPPR through the “Process Final RPPR” link on the eRA Commons Closeout Status screen. In contrast, Annual RPPRs are accessed via a similar link on the Commons Status screen. This link provides instructions for accessing and completing the F-RPPR.
While the F-RPPR does not require the reporting of an unobligated balance, if any, like the Annual RPPR, it does require the reporting of Participants and their effort levels in calendar and/or academic and summer months. Your COM SRAS Grants Proposal Specialist (GPS) can provide you with these effort levels. This information is normally available approximately 30 days before your report is due. If you would like to submit your F-RPPR earlier, please let your GPS know. In addition, your GPS can assist in answering questions about F-RPPR administrative information.
