The first quarterly report required by Section 1512 of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act must be filed by October 10, 2009.

Section 1512 requires organizations that receive Recovery Act funding to report on funds received and spent, and on the job creation impact of those funds. Organizations that receive Recovery Act funds directly from a Federal agency will submit their report to the Federal government; those that receive Recovery Act funds from State agencies will provide the State agencies with required data.

This training program will be conducted by KPMG and will describe the Section 1512 reporting requirements, with an emphasis on the calculation of jobs created and retained.   It is geared to those who have a "hands-on" role in administering Federal Recovery Act funds for local government and not-for-profits.
