Continuations/Grant Progress Reports
Many agencies require annual reports to be submitted for projects which span multiple years. For some agencies, an annual or grant progress report is scientific in nature only and is submitted by the PI directly to the agency. NSF annual progress reports are handled in this manner. For other agencies, there is budgetary and administrative data in the report and an institutional signature is required. For agencies with these requirements, a continuation proposal must be routed in the EPEX system so that the necessary internal approvals can be obtained prior to institutional signature. NIH continuations/grant progress reports are handled in this manner. A continuation proposal should be created in EPEX and routed as described in the Proposal Routing Section.
