Fogarty and NIH require grantees to submit annual progress reports documenting grantee accomplishments and compliance with the terms of the awards, describing scientific progress and identifying significant changes.
The federal Research Performance Progress Report (RPPR) is required for all NIH awards issued under the Streamlined Non-competing Award Process (SNAP) with budget start dates on or after July 1, 2013. NIH is also piloting Phase II of the RPPR for non-SNAP awards. Learn more about NIH use of the RPPR from the NIH Office of Extramural Research (OER).
The following supplemental guidance for completing progress reports is specific to Fogarty grantees.
Progress reports for SNAP awards
The RPPR is required for all SNAP awards with budget start dates on or after July 1, 2013. To determine if an award is subject to SNAP, refer to your Notice of Award, Section II Terms and Conditions.
Progress reports for non-SNAP awards
Paper submission of PHS 2590 progress reports will be accepted during the Phase II RPPR non-SNAP pilot.
Throughout the Phase II pilot grantees can use the RPPR to submit progress reports electronically. NIH anticipates it will require all grantee institutions to use the RPPR for non-SNAP progress reports beginning on October 17, 2014. See the related notice NOT-OD-14-064, released March 4, 2014.
