ANT Research Performance Progress Report Guide


The Research Performance Progress Report (RPPR) Guide for NSF Antarctic Principal Investigatorsis designed to help NSF Antarctic principal investigators (PIs) complete annual and final reports in the new Research Performance Progress Report (RPPR) system. The project reporting service meets 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). The RPPR is the result of a government-wide effort to create greater consistency in the administration of federal research awards by streamlining and standardizing reporting formats. The system has many of the features included in the NSF FastLane reporting system. However, much of the information will now be provided in structured fields. PDF attachments of annual reports will no longer be accepted.

This guide provides suggestions and examples for each question within the new system, tailored to the activities conducted under the Antarctic program. However, all Antarctic projects that receive funding under a cooperative agreement should follow the reporting requirements stated in the cooperative agreement.

If you have specific questions concerning the report system, please refer these to you ANT program officer.
