There are special instructions for preparing and submitting RPPRs for R15s.

  • The reporting period for the RPPR is the year preceding the anniversary date of the RPPR. For example, if an award is made on 04/01/2013, the R15 RPPR is due on or before 04/01/2014, and should report on the activities performed under the award between 04/01/2013 and 03/31/2014.
  • NIH staff will review the submitted RPPR, but will not routinely communicate back to the grantee unless additional information is needed

Undergraduate and graduate students who have performed work on an R15 for at least one person month must be reported on the RPPR and must have a Commons account, even if they were not paid by the R15.
