OMB Requests Public Comment on Proposed ARRA Reporting Requirements

On April 1st, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) published a notice in the Federal Register (74FR14824) requesting comments on the standard data elements that it proposes to require for reporting under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) for grants, cooperative agreements, and loans.  The deadline for comments is May 1, 2009. 

As previously mentioned on this site, recipients of funding provided by federal agencies through ARRA will be required to report back to their respective agencies every three months about their project or activity, particularly how many jobs it has created or sustained.
