Description: The Corporation is seeking approval for a new form for all grantees of the NSSC to report GPRA data annually as of a single date. The data to be reported on this form is currently reported by most grantees semi-annually on CNCS Form 1020, Project Progress Report (OMB Control Number 3045-0033). A small percentage are required to submit the PPR quarterly. Pending OMB approval, the GPRA reporting data will be deleted from the Project Progress Report as of July 31, 2000. The new NSSC GPRA Reporting Form, if approved, will be filed by all grantees by December 1 each year, containing data with a time period of Oct 1 through September 30.
Having all grantees, regardless of their grant budget cycle, report annually as of September 30 will reduce the reporting burden for GPRA data for grantees who currently report this data semi-annually or quarterly. It will also enable the Corporation to submit current, consistent, and reliable aggregrate GPRA reporting data to Congress by the date established by law, February 28th of each year.Start Signature
