Stimulus Checklist: Part II

Deconstructing the detailed Office of Management and Budget memoranda on implementing the stimulus is no picnic, particularly since OMB has published two updates since releasing its initial guidance in February. The most recent, dated June 22, describes the new reporting requirements accompanying Section 1512 of the Recovery Act. These requirements apply to recipients of federal funding through grants, loans and cooperative agreements. In theory, the data submitted will give the public unprecedented access to federal spending information through Recovery.gov.

As a follow-up to our initial checklist, we've distilled the major requirements for the next three months, organized by deadline. The first reports on recipient spending are due in early October.
