This report is required even if the sponsor has already received payments equal to the maximum obligation of the United States stated in the grant agreement. For construction and non-construction projects, the final report shall be made on the form the sponsor normally uses to request payment (SF-270 or SF-271) in cases of reimbursement by Treasury check, or on SF-272 if the letter of credit has been used. The final financial report may also serve as the request for final payment when 100% progress payment has not been made or when an adjustment to the 100% progress payment is required.
