New Research Performance Progress Report (RPPR)

Starting in early 2013, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has mandated that federal agencies implement a federal-wide research performance progress report (RPPR).  MUSC is part of a beta test with NIH to use this form on the NIH era Commons system for eSNAP progress reports.

The use of the new format is optional and you will be required to select which form you wish to use if you are preparing a progress report in the Commons. 

Information about the new forms can be found at the DHHS web sites:

There is also a training video provided by the Federal Demonstration Partnership available for viewing.  It is a rather large file (94.3 mb) and may take some time to download.  The presentation takes around 45 minutes to view.
