slide7
Prime Recipient’s Responsibilities

The Act imposes specific reporting and funds management requirements on all awards funded with ARRA funds

It is critical that the Recovery Act requirements are

successfully met

The prime recipient is ultimately responsible for the reporting

of all data required by Section 1512 of the Recovery Act

Initiate appropriate data collection and reporting procedures

to assure Recovery Act requirements are met in a timely and

effective manner

Review and correct all data supplied by sub-recipient and

vendors

Submit quarterly reports to FederalRecovery.gov

Implement internal control measures as appropriate to ensure

accurate and complete information

slide8
What is Different About ARRA Funds?

Unprecedented levels of transparency, oversight and

accountability

Aggressive expenditure requirements (ARRA funds must be

used consistently)

No co-mingling of ARRA funds and non-ARRA funds

Quarterly progress reporting of ARRA fund expenditures, job

creation and retention statistics

Considerable ARRA reporting requirements for the State of

Washington

The Recovery.gov website has been setup to facilitate the review of “where” and “how” ARRA funds are being implemented

slide9
Not “Business as Usual”

Generally funds must be spent in two years

Must spend the ARRA funds AND the non-ARRA funds at an

appropriate rate (we can’t “hoard” funds for a rainy day)

International spending without prior approval is limited to $25,000 or

10% of the award, whichever is less

You may hire foreign graduate students and post-docs

slide10
Principal Investigator’s Responsibilities

ARRA Compliance Expectations:

Funds should be spent in a timely fashion and reported

quarterly

Cannot co-mingle existing funds with ARRA funds

Compliance with sponsor and UW policies and procedures

Cost transfers between ARRA and non-ARRA funds will be

monitored closely to ensure compliance with ARRA

regulations

ARRA Funds are Monitored in the 20-xxxx Budget Series:

Contact Team ARRA at uw-arra@uw.edu if your ARRA

budget is in a different series

ARRA reporting requirements are in addition to current sponsor reporting requirements

slide11
Principal Investigator’s Responsibilities (cont’d)

The PI must report on two data elements each quarter:

The percentage of project completion

Description of quarterly activities / milestones

Grants: description of the overall purpose and expected

outcomes for the award and for first-tier sub-awards

Contracts: description of significant services performed

and/or supplies delivered

The UW will consolidate all data elements from the Data Mart and

other university sources and submit the report to FederalReporting.gov

slide13
99 Unique Data Elements in Federal Report

PIs and sub-contractors enter two data elements through a

simple web-based form

The remaining data elements are filed from existing system data

or from a small amount of information entered by central offices

Web interfaces for support team

Web interfaces for non-research team

Web interfaces for Human Resources

slide20
Progress Reports

Progress reports should be short, concise and for the current reporting quarter

Progress reports will be made available on Recovery.gov for

the general public to view

Remember to use generic language whenever possible

PI narrative is limited to 2000 characters including spaces and

punctuation

Focus on your short term progress

What has been accomplished in the current reporting period?

Whenever possible, include potential long term or quality of

life outcomes

If there is a possibility that the research could result in a protectable

Intellectual Property (IP), be careful to ensure that the progress

report does not contain any information that could constitute “public

disclosure”

slide21
Sub-Awards

UW Issues a Sub-Award (Sub-Contract)

UW will do the federal reporting

Sub-recipient must send reporting elements to UW five days prior to

the 10th of the reporting month

Two missed reporting periods and UW may terminate sub-award

Extensive reporting elements for sub-awardees

Must “quick start” sub-awards

Sub-awardees will be given a UW NetID by the Office of Sponsored

Programs (OSP) to enter non-scientific report

Be sure “milestones” are correlated with prime report

Scientific / Technical Project Report must be submitted by UW PI

UW PI will be notified if a sub-awardee report is late

slide22
Sub-Recipient

UW as a Sub-Recipient*

Prime** will decide who reports and what needs to be

reported

The UW reports data elements to the Prime**, if so

designated

Reporting will occur from the Data Mart and will be submitted or overseen by Team ARRA

* Sub-recipient = Federal funding flows through another institution

** Prime = Recipient of federal funding

slide29
Ramifications of Non-Compliance

(non-reporting or mismanagement of award)

Termination of award(s)

Return of funds to sponsor on an individual and institutional

level

Debarment from receiving future funds on an individual and

institutional level

Impairment to the UW’s reputation and credibility

The Recovery Act’s transparency requirement will make the

UW’s non-compliance visible to national/international

constituents

Inaccurate and uncorrected data will be made public on

www.Recovery.gov

If you have not submitted your report(s) on time, your award

will be shut down

slide31
Procurement Services

Early Purchasing Involvement

Proactively working with Team ARRA to provide purchasing guidance

Research special requirements – e.g. “Buy American”

Assist with timely expenditures (please notify Purchasing staff of any

large purchases)

Purchasing Staff Preparedness

Easy identification of ARRA funded purchase requests

All ARRA orders treated as top priority expedites

Reporting Supplier Spend

Tracking key data elements from Vendors

slide32
Procurement Services (cont’d)

Vendor Reporting

Vendor reporting will be required on any single payment

greater than $25,000 made by either the prime recipient or the

sub-recipient.

All payment of $25,000 or less will be aggregated and reported

separately, including the number of vendors comprising the

aggregated total amount.

slide33
ARRA Budget Numbers for Multiple Year Awards

ARRA awards that are funded annually but have maturity

dates greater than one year will use the SAME 20-xxxx

budget number for each year of funding

This will mitigate tracking errors and avoid miscalculating

ARRA award totals

slide34
Stimulus Funding Supporting Capital Construction Projects

Non-Research ARRA Construction Funding (i.e., lab renovations)

Awarded to the UW by Federal or State agencies 

The UW is required to collect certain data (such as jobs created)

and ensure that certain requirements (such wage rates) are met

 What Departments Need to Do

Identify ARRA funded projects

Designate ARRA as the funding source in the University Project

Tracking System (a 40-xxxx budget with a 661 program category

will be set up to designate ARRA funding

CPO will handling the data gathering and reporting

Chiaka Amadi, camadi@uw.edu

slide35
Other Non-Research/Non-Capital ARRA Projects at the UW

Certain Student Loan and Scholarship Programs funded by ARRA (i.e., Nursing Loan Program)

Reporting requirements same as other ARRA funds

21-xxxx series used to track activity

State Education Stabilization Fund

Included in UW’s Annual appropriation

Reporting handled centrally, no impact on campus departments

Please contact Jeff Follman at jfollman@uw.edu for information on budget set up for any non-research/non-capital ARRA funding

HR Support

    • Reporting of Jobs
      • Minimal Direction from Federal Government
      • Require one number reported for both jobs retained and
      • created per award
      • Number is a cumulative report of FTEs for the entire
      • reporting period and also converted into hours
      • Distinguish retained and new for internal purposes
    • Process
      • Run from Payroll Data
      • % Distribution on 20-xxxx or other ARRA budgets
      • If EID was previously on payroll, then reported as “retained”
slide38
Jobs Reported

Reported in 1st Qtr report to Recovery.gov – 9/30/09

Methodology - All ARRA budget actual distribution productive hours added together then divided by the total number of possible productive hours in the quarter = FTE. Only exception is for employees paid on stipend—when they are paid on stipend we called them .5 FTE

Newly Created – 7.58 FTE

Retained – 51.201 FTE
