Federal Funding Accountability And Transparency Act

The Federal Funding Accountability and Transparency Act of 2006 (FFATA) requires that information on federal awards be made available to the public on USASpending.gov.

Under FFATA, State agencies that are prime grant award recipients and issue subawards meeting the FFATA reporting threshold of ≥ $30K must report subaward activity and executive compensation.  In addition State agencies that are prime contract recipients from the federal government must report any sub-contracts issued meeting the reporting threshold.  Note the second scenario is less common in RI state government but may apply.   Refer to the FSRS FAQ page for details on reporting. 

The Grants Management Office is committed to helping state agency award recipients comply with all FFATA requirements.
