Subject: [UFRESEARCH-L] NIH Reminds Recipients to Submit Complete, Timely and Accurate Progress and Financial Reports



Please note that that NIH has sent out a reminder concerning recipient responsibilities to submit timely and accurate progress and financial reports. 

Research Performance Progress Report (RPPR):   Progress reports document grantee recipient accomplishments and compliance with terms of award.  Progress reports usually are required annually as part of the non-competing continuation award process and are submitted through the eRA Commons RPPR module.  For awards under Streamlined Non-Competing Award Process (SNAP), progress reports are due the 15th of the month preceding the month in which the budget period ends (e.g., if the budget period ends 11/30, the due date is 10/15). If the 15th falls on a weekend or Federal holiday, the due date is automatically extended to the next business day. Non-SNAP RPPRs are due approximately 60 days before the next budget period start date. Multi-year funded (MYF) RPPRs are due annually on or before the anniversary of the budget/project period start date of the award.  Recipients may run a list of progress reports that are listed as “due” within the next 4 months for a selected recipient institution at    

Financial Expenditure Report - Federal Financial Report (FFR):  Reports of expenditures are required as documentation of the financial status of grants according to the official accounting records of the recipient organization.  Financial expenditure reports (domestic and foreign) are submitted using the electronic FFR system located in eRA Commons.  Except for awards under SNAP and awards that require more frequent reporting, the FFR is required on an annual basis. When required on an annual basis for non-SNAP awards, the report must be submitted for each budget period no later than 90 days after the end of the calendar quarter in which the budget period ended.  The reporting period for an annual FFR will be that of the budget period for that particular grant; however, the actual submission date is based on the calendar quarter.  Recipients may run a list of FFRs that are due by accessing the Search for Federal Financial Report (FFR) screen within the eRA Commons FFR Module. 

Additional information about NIH reporting requirements described above can be found in the NIH Grants Policy Statement under section 8.4 Monitoring and 8.6.1 Final Federal Financial Report at  

Additional information on the eRA Commons Modules, User Guide, and documentation for submitting progress and financial reports is available at  

Compliance Reminder: Failure to submit complete and accurate progress and financial reports may affect future funding to the organization and may result in a delay of continued support.
