The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality has announced that AHRQ Fellowship grantees will be required to use the eRA Commons Research Performance Progress Report (RPPR) module in 2014. AHRQ plans to transition most other AHRQ awards to the RPPR later in 2014.
The eRA release scheduled for January 31, 2014, will provide AHRQ Fellowship grantees with the ability to use the RPPR in place of the PHS 416-9 Noncompeting – Individual Fellowship Progress Report for Continuation Support. AHRQ will require all Fellowship progress reports with start dates on or after August 1, 2014 to be submitted using the RPPR module. The PHS 416-9 will no longer be available after August 1, 2014.
AHRQ use of the RPPR format will not differ from NIH; AHRQ grantees are encouraged to use the resources posted on the NIH RPPR page.
