REEport Guide for Project Directors Dec. 2015 REEport (Research, Education, and Extension project online reporting tool) is the USDA National Institute for Food and Agriculture's singular grant and formula/capacity funded project reporting system. May 2013 it deployed replacing the the previous Current Research Information System (CRIS) web forms system. REEport utilizes the Research Performance Progress Report (RPPR), a standard progress report format that all Federal research agencies will be required to use. REEport is required for any person who receives funding through NIFA capacity grants or non-capacity research, extension, or education grants or state funded agricultural research grants. It is also used by administrative, financial, and other support personnel who manage the capacity and non-capacity projects at their universities or independent organizations.

Current Research Information System (CRIS)
The CRIS national database can still be searched: http://cris.nifa.usda.gov/search.html
Since1966, CRIS was the federal automated system for storing and retrieving information on current agricultural and forestry research. Since then the system has expanded to include a number of education, extension and integrated activities. All research sponsored or conducted by the USDA were required to be documented in CRIS. Over 95 percent of all publicly supported research in the program areas mentioned above was documented in CRIS, and the system contains both management and scientific data. The current national database consists of more than 30,000 research projects. Most CRIS data is available to the public.
