OMB Releases New Guidance for Implementation of Reporting Requirements for Recovery Act Funded Federal-Aid Projects

June 23, 2009
On June 22, 2009, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) published Implementing Guidance for the Reports on Use of Funds Pursuant to the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 ("Recovery Act"). This guidance details the reporting requirements included in Section 1512 of the Recovery Act for recipients of grants, loans and other forms of assistance. The reports required by Section 1512 will be submitted by recipients beginning in October 2009 and will provide information to the government, such as:
  • Who is receiving Recovery Act dollars and in what amounts?
  • What projects or activities are being funded with Recovery Act dollars?
  • What is the completion status of such projects or activities and what impact have they had on job creation and retention?
The reporting framework in the referenced guidance has been updated and enhanced to capture additional spending data from prime recipients and sub-recipients of Federal financial assistance Recovery Act awards. Further, OMB has deployed a nationwide data collection system at the website that will reduce the information reporting burden on recipients by simplifying reporting instructions and providing a user-friendly mechanism for submitting required data.
