Reporting Change

Changes to progress reporting take effect this month, the Office of Extramural Research at the National Institutes of Health notes at its site. Researchers with NIH Streamlined Noncompeting Award Process and Fellowship awards have to now use the eRA Research Performance Progress Report Commons Module for all grants with May 1 and May 15 due dates. "It is important to be aware of these requirements because noncompliance with them will jeopardize the NIH's ability to issue timely awards," the post adds.

To determine if a grant falls in this category, OER says to check to see if the award uses SNAP — K awards and R awards usually do, and F awards also have to meet this new requirement.
