Reports

Technical reports of progress are required annually; a technical final report is also requested upon completion of project. Fiscal reports are required at least semiannually.

Note: This section indicates whether program reports, expenditure reports, cash reports or performance monitoring are required by the Federal funding agency, and specifies at what time intervals (monthly, annually, etc.) this must be accomplished.

Audits

The Comptroller General of the United States, his representative, or auditors of the cognizant audit agency for the educational institution involved shall have access at any reasonable time to the laboratories, offices, or other facilities of the recipient for purposes of review and observation of the status and progress of the sponsored project. Periodic audits should be made as part of the recipient's system of financial management and internal control to meet terms and conditions of grants and other agreements. OMB Circular No. A-133, Audits of States, Local Governments and Non-profit Organizations, is applicable.

Note: This section discusses audits required by the Federal agency. The procedures and requirements for State and local governments and nonprofit entities are set forth in OMB Circular No. A-133. These requirements pertain to awards made within the respective State's fiscal year - not the Federal fiscal year, as some State and local governments may use the calendar year or other variation of time span designated as the fiscal year period, rather than that commonly known as the Federal fiscal year (from October 1st through September 30th).

Records

All related data, information, records, and accounts shall be retained for 3 years beyond the expiration date of the grant unless other disposition is specified in writing by the awarding agency.

Note: This section indicates the record retention requirements and the type of records the Federal agency may require. Not included are the normally imposed requirements of the General Accounting Office. For programs falling under the purview of OMB Circular No. A-102, record retention is set forth in Attachment C. For other programs, record retention is governed by the funding agency's requirements.
