Federal Financial Report Instructions
1) Recipients will be instructed by Federal agencies to submit the Federal Financial Report (FFR) to
a single location, except when an automated payment management reporting system is utilized. In
this case, a second submission location may be required by the agency.
2) If recipients need more space to support their FFRs, or FFR Attachments, they should provide
supplemental pages. These additional pages must indicate the following information at the top of
each page: Federal grant or other identifying number (if reporting on a single award), recipient
organization, Data Universal Numbering System (DUNS) number, Employer Identification Number
(EIN), and period covered by the report.
1) The submission of interim FFRs will be on a quarterly, semi-annual, or annual basis, as directed by
the Federal agency. A final FFR shall be submitted at the completion of the award agreement. The
following reporting period end dates shall be used for interim reports: 3/31, 6/30, 9/30, or 12/31. For
final FFRs, the reporting period end date shall be the end date of the project or grant period.
2) Quarterly and semi-annual interim reports shall be submitted no later than 30 days after the end of
each reporting period. Annual reports shall be submitted no later than 90 days after the end of each
reporting period. Final reports shall be submitted no later than 90 days after the project or grant
period end date.
Note: For single award reporting:
1) Federal agencies may require both cash management information on lines 10(a) through 10(c) and
financial status information lines 10(d) through 10(o).
2) 10(b) and 10(e) may not be the same until the final report.
