Recipient Reporting Period Extended

January 15 to Midnight P.S.T. on January 22, 2010
Extended Reporting Period

Extended Reporting - January 15-22The Recovery Board's decision to give recipients  additional time to report was based on several circumstances:   

  • The change in calculating jobs -- The guidance on the new calculation was issued just two weeks prior to the start of the reporting period
  • Hard Edit Checks --  Put in place to improve the quality of the data, the edit checks also resulted in recipients needing morel time to fill out each report. 
  • Timing -- There were only five business days to report between the first day on January 1 and the final reporting date on January 10.

NOTE: Reports filed after January 15, 2010 will be considered late reports.

ALERT FOR PRIME RECIPIENTS:  The period for commenting on sub-recipient reports has been changed.  It is now from 12:01 A.M.  on January 23 to midnight P.S.T.

ALERT FOR FEDERAL AGENCIES: The period for reviewing recipients' reports has been changed.  It now begins at 12:01 A.M. on January 24 and ends at midnight P.S.T. on January 29, 2010.
