This standard operating procedure (SOP) includes the following sections: Purpose, Procedure, Contacts, and Links.
To document progress of a grant through a PHS 2590 noncompeting progress report and document a program officer's evaluation of the progress report in IMPAC.
Except for those with multiyear awards, NIH grantees must submit annual reports describing scientific progress and identifying changes in objectives, scope, or key personnel.
Multiyear awards receive all funding in the first year and have different rules. For more information, go to NIH Instructions for Progress Reports for Multiyear Funded (MYF) Awards.
NIH does not notify grantees that a progress report is late, and may delay awards if reporting elements are not complete.
NIAID program officers review each progress report to determine whether NIAID will continue funding a project, and NIAID grants management specialists evaluate each grant's administrative and fiscal status. Both must approve a progress report before NIAID can issue an award.
Find more information in Understand the Annual Progress Report in the Strategy for NIH Funding.
Note: This SOP covers progress reports for training, multiproject, foreign, and small business awards, as well as any other grants for which PIs are allowed to use the PHS 2590 form. For awards that require the Research Performance Progress Report (RPPR), go to the Research Performance Progress Report (RPPR) SOP.
