Full Reporting Agencies Submission Requirements

Each full reporting agency (FRA) deadline for its AFR submission is Nov. 20 and are encouraged to make early submissions. All FRAs are required to make entries into USAS to ensure USAS accurately reflects the agency’s financial position.

Each FRA is required to submit all notes and schedules as separate attachments through the Other Notes and Disclosures Submission System (ONDSS) web application. Each note must be submitted as separate attachments in Microsoft Word format (latest version: docx). Schedules must be in Microsoft Excel format (latest version: xlsx). Do not submit a note to indicate “not applicable. ”

For a list of reporting requirements and itemized due dates, see Deadlines.

Do not send confidential information to the Financial Reporting section.

The following items are required to be included in each FRA’s submission package:

  • Certify USAS and Interagency Activity through the CAFR Note Reporting & Certification ( CNRC )
  • Format and upload all applicable notes to their respective web application. The required format is a Microsoft Word document (latest version: docx) with header information that includes: agency name/number and note number/name. If the note contains a table, include the table in the Word document — rather than as a separate Excel document or other database application file. Do not submit a note to indicate “not applicable.”
  • Notes submitted through the applicable web application must tie to the submitted copy of the agency’s notes from its published AFR.

    Note: Screen prints from the applicable web application will not be accepted in lieu of the required copy from the agency’s published AFR.

  • Bond schedules 2A–2F
  • Pollution Remediation Obligation Inventory (Excel)
  • Fluctuation analysis — copy or export from USAS Financial Statements in FMQuery–SIRS. Agencies can run these statements from USAS Fluctuation Analysis drop-down menu. Agencies must also provide explanations for listed variances.

    Note: If the agency has no activity, copy or export the blank fluctuation analysis from FMQuery–SIRS.

  • Hard copy: Each agency marked with an asterisk (*) on the Full Reporting Agencies list below must submit a hard copy of its AFR.

The following items are not required as part of the FRA submission package:

  • USAS DAFR8910 Interfund/Interagency Activity report
  • Financial statement DAFRs (DAFR8580, DAFR8600, DAFR8590, DAFR8585, DAFR8600 or DAFR8605)
  • Hard copy exhibits (combined and combining balance sheet, statement of net position and/or operating statement)
  • Hard copy Schedule of Expenditures of Federal Awards (Schedule 1A)
  • Hard copy State Grant Pass-Through Schedule (Schedule 1B)
  • GR reconciliation worksheet

For submission requirements to agencies other than the Comptroller’s office, see Addresses and Number of Copies to Deliver.
