NOT-OD-14-026 – NIH Will Require Use of Research Performance Progress Report (RPPR) for All Multi-Year Funded Awards

Dear Colleagues,


NOT-OD-14-026Use of RPPR for All Multi-Year Funded (MYF) Awards


This new MYF progress report submission process applies to all MYF awards submitted on or after January 31, 2014.

This Notice announces new procedures and instructions for submitting annual progress reports for multi-year funded (MYF) awards. The NIH will require the use of the eRA RPPR Module. MYF awards are awards for which the project period and budget period are the same and are longer than one year.  Progress Reports for these awards are due annually on or before the anniversary of the budget/project period start date of the award.  The reporting period for a MYF progress report is the calendar year preceding the anniversary date of the award. 


Some examples of NIH activity codes that traditionally are multi-year funded include:


·         C06: Research Facilities Construction Grant

·         DP2: NIH Director’s New Innovator Award

·         DP3: Type 1 Diabetes Targeted Research Award

·         R15: Academic Research Enhancement Award (AREA)


Upon submission of the report via the eRA Commons, the Program and Grants Management Officials will review the report and request any additional information or clarification if required.   Unless follow-up is necessary, there will not routinely be any communication back to the grantee or PD/PI and the progress report will be considered complete and accepted.


For more information see NIH Instructions for Progress Reports for Multi-year Funded (MYF) Awards within the NIH Research Performance Progress Report (RPPR) Instruction Guide. Additional information and resources on the RPPR can be found on the eRA Commons page.


If submitting a MYF progress report on or prior to January 30, 2014, please use the current method.


If you should have any questions, please contact your Contract and Grant Officer in Sponsored Projects.
