Inclusion data records (IDRs) included with Research Performance Progress Reports (RPPRs) submitted on/after March 5, 2015, must be updated into the enrollment format supported by the eRA Inclusion Management System (IMS), even if no new enrollment has occurred in the past year. Attempts to submit the RPPR without updating the cumulative inclusion enrollment data will result in an error. If the inclusion data are already in the IMS format and are not updated in the RPPR, grantees will continue to receive a warning to ensure that section G.4.b has not been overlooked.
