The Department of Defense (DoD) is providing this information for American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) funding recipients that is necessary to effectively implement the reporting requirements included in Section 1512 of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. The July memo issued by OMB (M-09-21Guidance) indicates that prime recipients and sub- recipients are the owners of the data submitted. Recipients are to report on the amount of recovery funds received, a list of projects and activities for which the funds will be used, an evaluation of the completion status of the project or activity, an estimate of the number of jobs created and/or retained by the project or activity, and details surrounding State and Local government investment in the project or activity.
Due to the limited number of grants, recipients of Recovery Act funded grants are required to report directly to Federal Reporting.gov
. Statistical methodologies will not be used for reporting jobs created and/or retained by the project or activity. Utilization of this online reporting tool will ensure standardized reporting compliance for the Department's Recovery Act funded grants. DoD expects all grantees to directly and comprehensively collect the jobs information for their projects, as well as the projects of any sub-recipients and vendors.
