Start Preamble

Title: Performance Progress Report (PPR).

OMB No.: New Collection.

Description: The PPR is a set of uniform reporting formats that will be used for standard reporting on performance under grants and cooperative agreements issued by the Administration for Children and Families (ACF) and the Grants Center of Excellence (CoE) partners. Performance reporting is an integral part of the President's Management Agenda (PMA). In addition to allowing for uniformity of information collection, these formats will support systematic electronic collection and submission of information. These formats will provide interim and final performance progress information as required by OMB Circulars A-102 and A-110.

The PPR consists of a cover page and six optional forms or formats. The cover page contains identifying data elements and a section for a performance narrative. Use of the cover page is required, and programs may only require their respondents to submit this page and/or attach a performance narrative. Alternatively, programs may opt to require the cover page and one or more of the six optional formats.

Respondents: ACF, the Grants Center of Excellence partners and their grantees.
