In an earlier blog we discussed what the ARRA meant for Federal Construction Contractors, and noted that the reporting would be over the internet, once the government had its website up and running.
On Monday, August 17, 2009, recipients of economic stimulus funds were notified that they now can access the website www.federalreporting.gov and register. Registration is necessary before the site will permit recipients to file reports, which begins on October 1, 2009. In addition to completing the registration process on the website, recipients also must obtain a Federal Reporting Personal Identification Number (FRPIN). Instructions on how to obtain a FRPIN can be found at http://www.recovery.gov/?q=content/recipient-reporting. The Government has published a 32 page guide to assist recipients in the registration process.
The government has indicated that anyone interested in reviewing the reports filed by recipients of Stimulus funding will be able to do so beginning on October 11, 2009 at the website www.recovery.gov.
