Dear Grantees:

The Federal Funding Accountability and Transparency Act (FFATA), beginning on 10/1/2010, requires grantees that received grants from FTA and passed through funds to sub-recipients to report information on their sub-awards via https://www.fsrs.gov/. This information is then made available to the public on http://www.usaspending.gov/. Reports need to be posted by the end of the month after the month in which the grant recipient passes through funds to sub-recipients.

FTA has recently identified a number of State Departments of Transportation that had received one or more FTA grants in FY 2012 but whose sub-award reports were not posted to http://www.usaspending.gov/ as of 12/31/12. All states in Region 8 need to ensure that their FFATA reports are up to date.

Please remember that recipients of JARC and New Freedom grants in FY 2012 also need to submit sub-award reports. While not every JARC or New Freedom grantee passes through funds to sub-recipients, grantees in these programs are more likely to do so.

Please contact Jennifer Stewart in the Region 8 office with any questions you may have at 720-963-3317.
