The first annual report is due nine months from award date. The draft of the first annual report should be complete and ready for review by Co-PIs by month seven or eight. Subsequent annual reports are due at 12-month intervals after the first project anniversary and should be ready for review by months 10 or 11 each project year.
Note: The annual report becomes due 90 days before the grant anniversary date and is considered overdue by the anniversary date. Remember that the evaluation report must be filed with the annual report as an attachment.
