Jobs Created/Retained - District • To report jobs created/retained within the district, districts will need to provide the following information: • Employee’s SSN • Hours worked by employee
Vendor Jobs Created/Retained • Recipients must consider the job impact on vendors funded with Recovery At funds. Typically, individuals who are employed by vendors in order to provide services to prime recipients or sub-recipients would be counted. • Recipients should not attempt to report on the employment impact on vendors from whom recipients are purchasing materials, equipment, or other supplies (so-called “indirect” jobs), except in those instances where the value or the quantity of the purchases is so significant as to have an identifiable employment impact on the vendor.
Vendor Payments Districts will need Vendor’s DUNS number (all vendors paid with ARRA funds must have a DUNS number) or the Vendor’s 9 digit zip code. Districts will report the amount of the payment to the vendor and the description of the goods/services paid for during the quarter being reported.
