NSF requires that NSF-funded researchers regularly report on the progress of supported projects and the way funds are used.
The 4 types of project reports are:
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
All submitted annual and final reports must be approved by an NSF Program Officer to meet the submission requirements.
Key features of Project Reporting System in Research.gov:
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.
Note: Project Outcome Reports are not reviewed or approved by NSF
