Institutional Delegation

Signing officials and business officials can delegate authority to PIs within their institutions to allow those PIs to submit Research Performance Progress Reports (RPPR) and Final Research Performance Progress Reports (Final RPPR) electronically to NIH. This authority can be revoked at any time.

Granting and revoking Submit authority is managed through the My Current Delegates screen in Commons. Not all roles can delegate all authorities; refer to the table in the Delegations topic for role-based constraints on delegation.

Agency-Specific Instructions: Department of Commerce and SAMHSA. Delegations cannot be used for DOC awards and SAMHSA.
