The Research Performance Progress Report (RPPR) is a new format for reporting on federal awards. For NIH, the RPPR will replace the eSNAP. The RPPR is available for use now at the NIH Commons and will be mandatory this spring.
NIH presented a webinar on this topic on 10/17/2012. If you were not able to view the webinar live, it is now available in archived form on the NIH RPPR page. There is a lot of information on this page about the RPPR, including the archived webinar.
NSF is also implementing the RPPR. The goal is to roll out the RPPR to all grantees by January 2013. This will involve moving NSF reporting from FastLane to Research.gov. See the NSF RPPR page for more information.
NSF is also hosting RPPR information for other federal granting agencies. See the federal-wide RPPR information page on the NSF web site.
OSP will be tracking these changes and is working on strategies to help research faculty and their colleagues through this transition.
