New standardized RPPR added to the
Army Research Office

Changes Coming June 1st to IPR System

On June 1, 2016, changes are coming to the Army Research Office (ARO) Interim Progress Reporting (IPR) System.

A new web‐based system will be deployed for submitting Interim Progress Reports, including products (journal articles, proceedings, etc.) generated from research.

The new system modernizes and streamlines processes, and implements the new Research Performance Progress Report (RPPR) standard. (The RPPR standard is a government-wide effort to standardize research reporting across the entire enterprise.)

Please NOTE, the new RPPR system does not include Monthly, Quarterly or Final Progress Reports at this time. ARO has been partnering with the Office of Naval Research to develop and test the new system over the past year.

Our goal is to make it easier for researchers to submit their IPR and associated products to ARO, while complying with new government mandates.

Access to the new system will be via the existing ARO Extranet, with a new pod entitled, “RPPR Interim Progress Reports,” using your existing userid and password.

This document outlines the changes to help you familiarize yourself before deployment.
