A public resource that serves as a one-stop-shop for reports, data, and analyses of NIH research activities. Highlights of the RePORT suite of tools includes RePORTER, Matchmaker, NIH Awards by Location, the NIH Data Book, and Categorical Spending.eRA Module: RePORTER (public)
A publicly available searchable database of NIH and other agency* awards. Includes administrative data, as well as news, publications, patents, and clinical trials associated with NIH funding. NIH RePORTER offers public search filters to identify projects that are part of NIH’s response to COVID-19, including grant projects and supplements funded under one of the special appropriations related to COVID-19 or under regular IC appropriations.
* also includes ACF, AHRQ, CDC, FDA, and VAeRA Module: QVR (internal)
QVR provides staff comprehensive options for gathering information about NIH grants applications and awards. This helps staff gather planning and workload information before applications are available for processing. This information includes title, abstract and key personnel information. This allows for identification of review expertise and potential conflicts of interest.
The tool offers numerous project- and person-based search criteria, with many options to configure standard and custom reports. Other capabilities include the LIKE functionality to find similar projects; multiple ways to visualize the results of your hitlist; and the ability to save the results of queries into carts. QVR offers search filters to identify projects that are part of NIH’s response to COVID-19, including grant projects and supplements funded under one of the special appropriations related to COVID-19 or under regular IC appropriations.eRA Module: SPIRES (internal)
SPIRES is a database of scientific publications resulting from NIH supported research, both extramural and intramural. The primary purpose of SPIRES is to automatically map publications from the NLM PubMed database to the respective grants. SPIRES data are used for portfolio analysis and program management by internal NIH communities through QVR and iRePORT and made available to the public via RePORTER.eRA Module: iREPORT (internal)
iRePORT integrates grants application and award information from multiple systems into an intuitive dashboard system for NIH staff. The tool focuses on visual displays on information, providing easy access to portfolio summaries and analysis tools and highlighting research products and trend analyses side by side with tools for portfolio management.eRA Module: Research, Condition, and Disease Categorization (RCDC)
RCDC is an electronic reporting process the National Institutes of Health (NIH) uses to categorize its funding in medical research at the end of each fiscal year. RCDC scientific categorical spending reports are the official source of NIH appropriations used to support extramural grants and cooperative agreements, R&D contracts, intramural research, and other funding mechanisms. The NIH reports funding to the public for many scientific categories. RCDC also provides analytical capabilities to create custom categories and portfolio visualizations for internal planning and analysis purposes.eRA Module: Portfolio Visualization (PVIZ)
The Portfolio Visualization (PVIZ) module is a data discovery tool that allows users to define and visualize project portfolios via clustering. The interactive visualizations provide opportunities to discover insights and trends in NIH research.eRA Module: Manual Categorization System (MCS)
The Manual Categorization System (MCS) provides the ability for NIH to categorize medical research funding and report on 6 official reporting categories, using RCDC text mining and other metadata as a base. Users can prorate, add projects, and subcategorize where needed. MCS offers categorization features tailored to meet the specific needs of the following categories: Biodefense; Health Disparities; HIV/AIDS; Human Fetal Tissue; Minority Health; and Women's Health.
