New NIH RPPR Submission Process

The Office of Sponsored Projects is pleased to announce that NIH Research Performance Progress Report (RPPR) will no longer require a Proposal Review Form (PRF) before submission. Additionally, NIH RPPRs will be processed by the Non-Negotiated Team within the Office of Sponsored Projects.

In order to ensure a successful submission of RPPRs, please follow the steps below:

  • Please route the RPPR through Commons to your assigned Non-Negotiated Specialist.
  • Send an additional email notification to your assigned Non-Negotiated Specialist and include:
    • OSP#
    • PI name
    • Project number
    • Deadline date
  • Submission will be processed by the assigned specialist and an automatic email from eCommons will be sent to the PI upon successful submission to NIH.

Notification to OSP should be received 4 business days before the deadline to ensure an accurate and successful review/submission timeline.

For assistance in locating your department’s Non-Negotiated Specialist, please see the Constituency Lists & Account Assignments page.

For questions regarding any of the steps listed above please contact your assigned specialist or email osp@austin.utexas.edu.
