Reports

Beginning the first fiscal year after receiving payments the State shall provide an annual report to the Regional Administrator in accordance with the schedule established in the grant agreement (generally not later than 90 days after the end of the fiscal year in which the payments were received). The annual report shall describe how the State has met the goals and objectives for the preceding fiscal year as identified in its intended use plan, including identification of loan recipients, loan amounts, and loan terms and similar details on other forms of financial assistance provided from the SRF.

Note: This section indicates whether program reports, expenditure reports, cash reports or performance monitoring are required by the Federal funding agency, and specifies at what time intervals (monthly, annually, etc.) this must be accomplished.

Audits

A State must, at a minimum, comply with the provisions of the Single Audit Act Amendments of 1996, and the OMB Circular No. A-133 and Compliance Supplement. States are also encouraged to conduct annual independent audits. State-conducted audits may be performed in conjunction with the Single Audit Act of 1984. In accordance with the provisions of OMB Circular No. A-133, "Audits of States, Local Governments, and Non-Profit Organizations," non-Federal entities that receive financial assistance of $500,000 or more within the State's fiscal year shall have an audit made for that year. The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Circular No. A-133, "Audits of States, Local Governments, and Non-Profit Organizations," was published in the Federal Register on June 27, 2003. The Circular implements the Single Audit Act Amendments of 1996. The Circular requires non-Federal entities that expend more than $500,000 in Federal award dollars, to have an audit conducted in accordance with the Circular's provisions. With the revised Circular, the previous OMB Circular No. A-128 for single audits of State and local governments was rescinded and the single audit requirements for these entities were incorporated among the provisions of OMB Circular No. A-133.

Note: This section discusses audits required by the Federal agency. The procedures and requirements for State and local governments and nonprofit entities are set forth in OMB Circular No. A-133. These requirements pertain to awards made within the respective State's fiscal year - not the Federal fiscal year, as some State and local governments may use the calendar year or other variation of time span designated as the fiscal year period, rather than that commonly known as the Federal fiscal year (from October 1st through September 30th).

Records

As part of the annual review conducted by the agency to assess the State's performance against activities identified in the intended use plan and annual report, and to determine compliance with the terms of the capitalization grant agreement, the State or loan recipient shall make available to EPA such records as the Regional Administrator reasonably requires to review and determine State compliance with the requirements of the CWA.

Note: This section indicates the record retention requirements and the type of records the Federal agency may require. Not included are the normally imposed requirements of the General Accounting Office. For programs falling under the purview of OMB Circular No. A-102, record retention is set forth in Attachment C. For other programs, record retention is governed by the funding agency's requirements.
