Simplified Reporting Agencies Package Submission Requirements

Each simplified reporting agency (SRA) is required to make entries into USAS to ensure USAS accurately reflects the agency’s financial position or submit the closing package by close of business on Sept. 20.

SRA agencies have two options available for AFR submission.

Option 1 – If an agency selects this option, the agency is responsible for:

  • Notifying their Financial Reporting Analyst by Sept. 9
  • Completing the SRA Closing Package (Excel file)
  • Submitting the Excel file to by close of business on Sept. 20

The Financial Reporting Section prepares certain entries within specific web applications (as shown below) on behalf of each SRA selecting Option 1:

AFR Web Application Financial Reporting Section Agency Responsibility
Capital Asset Note Submission System (CANSS) Yes (includes BC) Certify by 9/28
Deposit and Investment Note Submission System (DINSS) No Make all USAS and web application entries and certify by 10/1

Option 2 – If an agency selects Option 2, the agency is responsible for all components of the submission requirements. No exceptions or extensions will be granted when selecting Option 2.

Each SRA 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).

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 SRA agency’s submission package:

  • Certify USAS and Interagency Activity through the CAFR Note Reporting & Certification ( CNRC ) web application.
  • 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.”

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

  • Pollution Remediation Obligation inventory (Excel)
  • Fluctuation analysis — copy or export from the 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.

The following items are not required as part of the agency’s 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 Federal Grant Pass-Through Schedule (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.
