There are two types of reporting requirements for these funds:

1) Current Research Information System (CRIS) reporting is done on both a project and total program basis. McIntire-Stennis research projects are submitted for approval to NIFA by the state agricultural experiment stations (SAES) and the state colleges and schools of veterinary medicine (CSVM). Each year SAESs and CSVMs submit a program of research to the CRIS office listing all the approved McIntire-Stennis projects they will support with their current allocation of McIntire-Stennis funds. Each year SAESs and CSVMs also submit to the CRIS office a progress report and an expenditure report for all the McIntire-Stennis projects they supported in the previous year.

2) Financial Reporting includes three types of reports: a) Certification of Offset (Form NIFA-2103) which is completed by the SAES's to certify that matching funds have been made available; b) SF-272, Federal Cash Transaction Report, which is submitted on a quarterly basis through the U.S. Department Health and Human Services' Payment Management System (DHHS-PMS); and c) SF-269, Financial Status Report, which is submitted on an annual basis to the Funds Management Branch by December 31st, for the reporting period of October 1st through September 30th.
