What are the requirements after being awarded this opportunity?
Semi-annual reports from each entity awarded a grant, cooperative agreement, or contract, summarizing the activities undertaken and identifying any sub-grants or sub-contracts awarded (including the purpose of the award and the identity of the recipient), to be posted not later than 30 days after the end of each 6-month period. Congress directed HHS to provide information on activities and programs supported with resources from the Prevention and Public Health Fund (PPHF) to a public website http://www.hhs.gov/open/recordsandreports/prevention/index.html. No cash reports are required. Reporting provides continuous program monitoring and identifies successes and challenges that awardees encounter throughout the project period. Also, reporting is a requirement for awardees who want to apply for yearly continuation of funding. Awardees must submit an Annual Performance Report via www.grants.gov 120 days before the end of each budget period. The report must not exceed 45 pages excluding administrative reporting; attachments are not allowed, but Web links are allowed. This report must include the following: performance measures, evaluation results, work plan, successes, challenges, CDC program support needs, and administrative reporting. The annual FFR form (SF-425) is required and must be submitted through eRA Commons within 90 days after each budget period ends. The report must include only those funds authorized and disbursed during the timeframe covered by the report. The final report must indicate the exact balance of unobligated funds, and may not reflect any unliquidated obligations. The final FFR expenditure data and the Payment Management System’s (PMS) cash transaction data must correspond; no discrepancies between the data sets are permitted. Failure to submit the required information by the due date may affect adversely the future funding of the project. If the information cannot be provided by the due date, awardees are required to submit a letter of explanation and include the date by which the information will be provided. Awardees should have already provided (unless supplemental funding is awarded in other years that would require this as new)a more detailed evaluation and performance measurement plan within the first six months of this project. This more detailed plan must be developed by awardees as part of first-year project activities, with support from CDC, must build on the elements stated in the initial plan, and must be no more than 25 pages. Awardees are required to submit performance measures annually as a minimum, and may require reporting more frequently. Performance measure reporting is limited to data collection. When funding was awarded initially, CDC program specified required reporting frequency, data fields, and format.
In accordance with the provisions of 2 CFR 200, Subpart F - Audit Requirements, non-Federal entities that expend financial assistance of $750,000 or more in Federal awards will have a single or a program-specific audit conducted for that year. Non-Federal entities that expend less than $750,000 a year in Federal awards are exempt from Federal audit requirements for that year, except as noted in 2 CFR 200.503.
Financial records, supporting documents, statistical records, and all other records pertinent to the project must be kept readily available for review by personnel authorized to examine PHS grant accounts. Records must be maintained for a minimum of 3 years after the end of a budget period.
