Guidance issued by OMB in September, 2010.
The timeline of the reporting cycle.
Tips for reporting based on lessons learned from past reporting cycles.
Where to find additional technical assistance.
Recipients can submit their report to their awarding agency outside of www.federalreporting.gov (i.e., by email or fax) if they are unable to report electronically.
Only reports submitted to agencies by the reporting deadline will be accepted.
Recipients can mark their report as “final” if the project status is complete, no additional jobs will be reported, all or nearly all funds from the award have been expended, and all or nearly all funds from the award have been received.
Recipients can make an adjustment to a report submitted in a prior reporting period (i.e., a report submitted in April 2011). Grantees should contact FTA with information on the correction and FTA will submit the correction to OMB.
Provide sufficient clarity and detail in narrative descriptions.
Taken in conjunction, entries in the “award description,” and “Quarterly Activities/Project Description for Prime and Subrecipients” fields must provide clear and complete information on the award’s purpose, scope and nature of activities, outcomes, and status of activities.
The information in the “Quarterly Activities/Project Description” field should include information on the accomplishments of the projects funded by the grant.
