Recipients are entities that have won Recovery awards. The vast majority fall into one of four categories:
- State/local governments
- Universities and other research institutions
- Non-profit organizations
- Private companies
When do they report?
Recipients are required by the Recovery Act to report every January 1 - 10, April 1 - 10, July 1 - 10, and October 1 - 10. The reports cover the status of the awards received in the three months prior to the reporting cycle.
Note: Because of the time needed to implement the Recovery Act after it was signed into law in February 2009, the first period recipients submitted reports for (February – September 2009) was longer than a calendar quarter.
What information do they submit?
Section 1512 of the Recovery Act requires all recipients to file reports that include, among other information:
The total amount of funds received from which federal agency;
- The amount of funds spent;
- A description of the project;
- The completion status of the project;
- The awards to sub-recipients.
Where do they report?
FederalReporting.gov is the portal for recipient reporting. After registering, recipients enter/upload the required data and information about their award(s). After a review period, the data -- without alteration or change-- is pulled into Recovery.gov, where it is posted on the 30th day of each reporting month.
