Changes are coming to the interim reporting formats used by federal agencies. Be prepared for RPPR.

Per the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Office of Extramural Research (OER):

"The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has mandated that federal agencies implement a federal-wide research performance progress report (RPPR) for submission of required annual or other interim performance reporting on research grant and cooperative agreement awards to standardize recipient reporting on federally-funded research projects." -HHS OER
