RE: 2008 Research Project Reports

DEADLINE: Friday, January 9, 2009

Again this year we are requesting that you submit calendar year 2008 Experiment Station Project progress and termination reports to the Current Research Information System (CRIS) using CRIS Web Forms. These are required for all projects as listed, regardless if they are Formula Funded (Hatch/McIntire-Stennis) projects or not.

If you do not have access to a computer web browser, you can submit the reports with the assistance of your department office staff. If you have questions or need assistance, please call Casey at 2-2397 or send an e-mail message to

The deadline for submitting 2008 CRIS reports is Friday, January 9, 2009.

Each year we have difficulty getting these reports submitted on time. Please be aware that if the report(s) is/are not completed by Friday, January 23, 2009, we will not process any gift, grant, contract, etc. materials for you until the report(s) has/have been completed. It is important for CALS as recipients of Formula Funds to comply with this request. All of our research activity is required to be reported in a CRIS report regardless of funding source.

*** If you are interested, Casey Hillmer is available to meet with you to demonstrate how to navigate through the CRIS system and to answer any questions you may have related to the CRIS forms. Please contact her at 262-2397 or to set up a time.
