In addition to carrying out its scientific mission, NIH exemplifies and promotes the highest level of public accountability. To that end, the Research Portfolio Online Reporting Tools (RePORT) website provides access to reports, data, and analyses of NIH research activities, including information on NIH expenditures and the results of NIH-supported research.

One of the tools available on the RePORT website is the RePORTER (RePORT Expenditures and Results) module. RePORTER is an electronic tool that allows users to search a repository of both intramural and extramural NIH-funded research projects and access publications and patents resulting from NIH funding.

In addition to RePORTER, the RePORT website also contains other tools that provide access to reports and summary statistics on NIH funding and the organizations and people involved in NIH research and training. One of these tools is the NIH Data Book, which summarizes the most commonly asked questions about the NIH budget and extramural programs. Another tool is called Awards by Location, which summarizes NIH awards for a particular fiscal year by the location and organization of the awardees.
