ARRA Reporting to End on March 19
Seems like just yesterday (2009) that President Obama signed the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) to help restart the economy. As of February 1, 2014, Congress has ended the reporting requirement for Recovery Act awards. Recipients will have until March 19 to review reports on FederalReporting.gov and to make changes as needed. They will also have until March 19 to submit an Automatic Data Change request to make changes to a report from a quarter other than Quarter 4, 2013. Questions may be emailed to the Help Desk at FederalReportingHelpDesk@ratb.gov through March 19.
