A DSP reminder:
NIH requires all annual progress reports be submitted using the RPPR module in eRA Commons.
If you ever need help with a NIH RPPR, DSP recommends you visit the NIH RPPR resource webpage at Research Performance Progress Report (RPPR). This NIH website is a fantastic source for RPPR Instructions and FAQ’s.
As a reminder:
Section D: Participants
Section D of the RPPR is really important to complete with accuracy. Of all the RPPR sections, it is Section D that DSP fields the most phone calls or emails from NIH Grants Management asking for clarifications.
Section D.1 is retrospective and is where you provide information about who worked on the project as follows:
- A Commons ID is required for all key personnel, postdocs, graduate and undergraduate students and encouraged for all other personnel listed in the Participants section.
- Provide or update information for:
the project program director(s)/principal investigator(s) (PDs/PIs) regardless of effort devoted to the project; and
all other persons who has worked on the project at least one person month during the reporting period, regardless of the source of compensation. You do not include the individuals who worked on the project less than 1 month in the RPPR.
- Round to the nearest whole person month that the individual worked on the project. To calculate person months, multiply the percentage of effort associated with the project by the number of months of the appointment.
- 25% of a 9 month academic year appointment equals 2.25 (academic year) person months (.25 x 9 = 2.25). Round down to 2.
- 90% of a 12 month calendar appointment equals 10.8 (calendar year) person months (.90 x 12 = 10.8). Round up to 11.
Section D.2.a is prospective and explicitly asks whether there will be, in the next budget period, a reduction of 25% or more in the level of effort from what was approved by the agency for the PD/PI or other senior/key personnel. Answering “yes” to the D.2.a level of effort question constitutes a prior approval request to the agency to reduce level of effort by 25% or more in the next budget period.
