REEport, The Research, Extension, and Education Project Online Reporting Tool, is NIFA’s primary grant reporting system which utilizes the Research Performance Progress Report (RPPR), a standard progress report format that federal research agencies are required to use. The system collects technical and financial data about projects NIFA has funded and allows grantees to report significant accomplishments and impacts of their research, extension, and education work. Project Directors or Principle Investigators of both USDA capacity (Hatch, Hatch Multistate, McIntire-Stennis, Animal Health) and competitive projects are require to enter and submit project data to NIFA through REEport.
The REEport system has 3 sections or modules that Project Directors/Principle Investigators will access to enter date: Project Initiation, Progress Reports, Final Reports.
SAES is required to submit annual and final reports for each approved formula fund project (Hatch, Multistate, Animal Health, McIntire-Stennis) that it maintains. USDA requires that these reports be submitted to Washington D.C. by March 1st each year. SAES's responsibility includes review and approval of these reports, as well as the submission to USDA. While the absolute deadline for receipt of Accomplishment Reports for formula fund projects is January 15th each year, reports can be completed and submitted through REEport anytime after September 30th.
