June 28, 2021 –
Last week Treasury released Compliance and Reporting Guidance for all eligible governments on reporting and compliance for the Fiscal Recovery Funds. As noticed last week, we have a tribal information session scheduled for June 28, 2021 at 3pm-4pm EDT (register for the session). Treasury has received Tribal feedback on the reporting guidance and we look forward to receiving further questions during our information session. Additionally, we will be issuing a forthcoming update to address tribal inquiries on the reporting guidance.
Each Tribal government is required to meet compliance and reporting responsibilities, as defined in the Interim Final Rule and further described in the Compliance and Reporting Guidance. The Reporting Guidance requires program and performance reporting to build public awareness, increase accountability, and monitor compliance of eligible uses. Treasury will begin to accept Interim Reports in August 2021 and will issue a User Guide and other reference materials by the beginning of August. Interim Reports are due by August 31st. Please check Treasury’s website frequently for updates.
Each Tribal government must submit an Interim Report by August 31, 2021, which covers the period from March 3 to June 30, 2021 and includes a summary of spending by expenditure category (see Reporting Guidance Appendix for a list of expenditure categories). In addition, each Tribal government must submit a quarterly Project and Expenditure Report beginning on October 31, 2021 and every quarter thereafter.
