NSF Updates to the Research Performance Progress Report

On September 28, the National Science Foundation announced the additional of new questions, effective October 5, to their Project Reporting System which is where awardees prepare and submit performance progress reports for their federally funded research projects and research-related activities. The edits include the following questions: (1) Has there been a change in the active other support of the PI/PD(s) since the last reporting period?; (2) What was the impact on teaching and educational experiences?; (3) What percentage of the award’s budget was spent in a foreign country?; and (4) Has there been a change in primary performance site location from that originally proposed?

Depending on these answers, PIs could also upload follow-up supporting documents. Finally, the changes also include the addition of further guiding text to clarify instructions where needed.
