Research Performance Progress Report (RPPR)

The Research Performance Progress Report (RPPR) implements the uniform reporting requirement and format for interim research progress reporting developed under the auspices of the National Science and Technology Council, through the Committee on Science and the Research Business Models Subcommittee, and established by the Office of Management and Budget for use by agencies that support research and research-related activities.

Information collected in annual progress reports provides the Office of Naval Research (ONR) with valuable data on grantee accomplishments and is used to report out to stakeholders, justify requests for future funding support, and make strategic, data-driven decisions for future investments. The data collected describe scientific progress, identify significant changes in objectives or directions, report on personnel, and describe plans for the subsequent budget period or year.

ONR requires annual online submission of all interim RPPRs. At this point in time, ONR is collecting progress reports through RPPR only for grants.

The ONR RPPR submission site is included as a part of the Army Research Office (ARO) extranet. The ARO extranet is located at:
