NIFA, in collaboration with our Land-Grant University (LGU) partners, is building a new grants management and reporting system, integrating the Plan of Work and REEport applications into a unified system. The NIFA Reporting System (NRS) creates an intuitive experience that streamlines reporting and reduces the burden on grantees.
The capacity grant reporting cycle follows the federal fiscal year (FY), from October 1st to September 30th. The table below provides information on key dates and reporting details.
|Financial Reports||FY 2022||Reporting on funds utilized for research and extension activities during the prior fiscal year.||February 1st|
|Research Results and Extension Results||FY 2022||The submission of results for individual research projects and extension programs ending on or before September 30, 2022. All extension programs and research projects will submit results at this time. Results are submitted annually and following project/program closeout.||March 1st|
|Annual Report of Accomplishments||FY 2022||A full report which highlights the most significant achievements, impacts and outcomes for a state or institution of research projects and extension programs in the prior fiscal year.||May 1st|
|Plan of Work (POW)||FY 2023||The planned activities expected to occur during the upcoming fiscal year with the use of capacity funds administered by NIFA.||September 1st|
OGFM Supplemental Form
|FY 2022||This requirement applies only to 1862 Land‐Grant Universities that are required to expend a specified percentage of Hatch Act and Smith‐Lever Act formula grant funds on multistate extension and integrated research and extension activities.||TBD|
*In the event a reporting deadline occurs on a non-business day or federal holiday, the due date shall be extended to the following business day.
The NRS development team regularly collaborates with NIFA program experts and grantees from the LGU community in working groups. These working group sessions enable NIFA to gain direct feedback from partner institutions and grantees on new features and identify areas for enhancement. This collaborative effort is used to create each module.
As the system continues to develop, additional working groups may be identified. Working groups will provide feedback on ways to improve reporting carried out in multiple systems and identify redundant and inefficient processes. In the future, NIFA will address financial reporting needs, civil rights reporting, and the inclusion of competitive programs. If you are interested in providing feedback as part of a working group, please contact email@example.com .
