Final Progress Report Additional Materials (FRAM)

A Final Research Performance Progress Report (Final RPPR) is required for any grant that has ended and any grant that is not to be extended through award of a new competitive segment. This report should be prepared in accordance with instructions provided by the awarding component. This topic discusses the steps for uploading, viewing, and submitting FRAM.

Refer to the topic titled Submitting Your Final Research Performance Progress Report for information related to the Final RPPR.

The Final Progress Report Additional Materials (FRAM) feature provides a means for grantees to enter, review, route, and submit information in response to specific request(s) by the Program Official (PO) for additional information related to the Final RPPR.

While reviewing a submitted Final RPPR, the PO might determine that additional materials related to the submitted report are required. In this case, the PO submits a request for this information referred to as a FRAM request. When a FRAM request is made, the PI is notified via email; Final RPPR status on Closeout Status is updated to FRAM Requested; and a FRAM Update link appears in the Closeout Status screen. The link is located as an action on the Final RPPR Report line for Closeout Submission Requirement.
