Types of Oversight
What kinds of data are federal award recipients expected to include in their reporting?
The information falls into one of three categories: financial data, such as expenses paid for with federal funds; compliance information to ensure the recipient is following federal regulations; and project data highlighting progress and/or community impact. Grant-making agencies use this information, in part, to gauge the success of their own programs and initiatives.
The required information may be collected through several different channels, including regular progress reports, site visits, and audits (see table below).
