After selecting the appropriate editing option, the RPPR section A. Cover Page displays. The Cover Page includes information about the grant, PD/PI, signing and administrative officials, organization, and project/reporting/budget periods. Some of this information may be auto-populated. For more information on the Cover Page, refer to section 6.1 Section A – Cover Page located in the NIH Research Performance Progress Report (RPPR) Instruction Guide.
The Cover Page includes tabs at the top and links at the bottom of the page for navigating to the other sections (e.g., Accomplishments, Participants), which may be completed in any order. Before navigating to and from any of these sections, it is always necessary to select the Save button to save all changes on the current page. Navigating away from any page on the RPPR without selecting Save results in the loss of any information entered prior to the last save.
Details for completing each section are discussed in the Instruction Guide (https://grants.nih.gov/grants/rppr/rppr_instruction_guide.pdf). Many of the fields on these pages, however, behave in a similar manner.
