2017 NIFA Update - Weekly Newsletters
2016 NIFA Update Weekly Newsletters
Learn about the rich history of USDA's National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA) from NIFA Director, Sonny Ramaswamy. NIFA's unique mission is to advance knowledge for agriculture, the environment, human health and well-being, and communities by supporting research, education, and extension programs in the Land-Grant University System and other partner organizations. NIFA doesn't perform actual research, education, and extension but rather helps fund it at the state and local level and provides program leadership in these areas.
The imperative to address issues pertaining to large social-ecological systems (SES) through appropriately scaled, well integrated, transdisciplinary efforts is now widely recognized (NSF 2015).
Quick instructions for how to submit a Final Report for a Capacity project.
The Financial Report process in REEport replaces the old AD-419 financial report that was previously done in CRIS Webforms. It is a project level report that details all expenditures by funding source, as well as all FTEs, for the most recently completed federal fiscal year. The report is used for research planning and is not an auditable document. It is due February 1st each year.
This document provides a convenient listing of some of the most salient and helpful points concerning using the REEport system. Please remember that this listing is not comprehensive and should be considered as a general guide to using REEport.
As a PD at a Land-Grant Institution, you and/or your Site Administrator have the option to create a new Capacity project proposal whenever you choose. You can then submit that proposal for NIFA review and approval so that you may spend capacity funds on that project. Keep in mind that NIFA has the option to defer or decline your project initiation instead of approving it. If your project is deferred, you will always have the option to resubmit it with the changes that NIFA requested. If your project is declined, that decision is final, and the project cannot be changed or resubmitted.
