About Project Reports

Research.gov supports the creation of 4 types of project reports, which meet the federal Government's requirement that research agencies implement a new reporting format for research and research-related projects called the Research Performance Progress Report (RPPR). Principal Investigators (PIs), Co-PIs, Sponsored Projects Office (SPO) staff and administrative users with read-only access are able to create, edit and view project reports.

The 4 types of project reports are:

  • Annual report
  • Interim report
  • Final report
  • Project outcomes report

 

Annual, Interim and Final Reports 
Annual project reports are required for all standard and continuing grants and cooperative agreements. Final reports are required for all standard and continuing grants, cooperative agreements and fellowships. Interim project reports are not required and are used to update the progress of a project any time during or before the award period expires

Project Outcome Reports (for general public)
The Project Outcomes Report is a report written for new and existing awards, specifically for the public, that provides insight into the outcomes of NSF-funded research. Project Outcome Reports can be viewed through Research.gov’s Research Spending & Results search service.
