The mission of Knowledge Management and Special Projects Branch (KMSPB) within CSSI is to manage the reporting of the NCI-funded portfolio of grant, intramural, and contract projects in official NCI and NIH reporting initiatives and advocate for the completeness and accuracy of the NCI-funded portfolio in NIH reports to Congress and the public. KMSPB is a centralized hub that collaborates closely with colleagues within NCI financial offices and scientific programs, as well as trans-NIH stakeholders to provide feedback and recommendations for reporting improvements and to strive for enhancements in data quality to better inform portfolio analysis efforts.
NIH Research, Condition, and Disease Categorization (RCDC)
The NIH Research, Condition, and Disease Categorization (RCDC) uses fingerprinting software technology to categorize and report the amount of funding in each of the more than 300 reporting categories for the NIH Office of Extramural Research (OER). As the lead for official NIH RCDC reporting of NCI-funded projects, KMSPB facilitates the development of trans-NIH definitions used to classify research into reporting categories and conducts annual reviews of research categorized using the NIH RCDC methodology.
NCI Funded Research Portfolio (NFRP)
The NCI Funded Research Portfolio (NFRP) is a publicly available website that contains information about research grants, contract awards, and intramural research projects funded by the NCI. It provides the ability to search the integrated database for projects and funding data reported annually by NCI divisions, offices, and centers (DOCs). KMSPB manages the NFRP website and database to ensure the completeness, timeliness, and accuracy of scientific funding data.
