Ohio Meets Second ARRA Reporting Requirement: Data Posted on Federal Recovery Act Site

Columbus – Office of Budget and Management (OBM) Director Pari Sabety today announced that Ohio has met its second federal reporting deadline for American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) loans, grants and contracts spending information.

The data submitted to the federal government reflects more than $887 million in total ARRA spending in 61 programs through Dec. 31, 2009, that is required to be reported under Section 1512(a) of the Act.

Additionally, the data shows that 20,672 direct, full-time equivalent positions were created or retained in Ohio between Oct. 31 and Dec. 31, 2009 with stimulus dollars administered by the State of Ohio. The data from all prime ARRA recipients is expected to be released to the public Saturday through the federal Recovery.gov Web site.

"We've made transparency and accountability a priority when spending and reporting stimulus resources in Ohio," Sabety said. "These federally-required benchmarks are giving states an opportunity to keep taxpayers posted on our progress throughout the Recovery Act."

Section 1512 ARRA Reporting Process

OBM submitted data to the FederalReporting.gov Web site from all state agencies that have received ARRA funds and are required to report under Section 1512(a) of the Act.

Ohio cities, villages, townships, counties and non-profit organizations that also received direct Recovery Act awards from the federal government also had to report 1512 information and financial data independently of the state of Ohio.

Jobs were reported using two different methodologies, as a result of new guidance from the federal Office of Management and Budget (OMB) on December 18. The OMB guidance can be viewed at http://www.whitehouse.gov/omb/assets/memoranda_2010/m10-08.pdf.

New guidance required prime recipients to count actual hours worked, paid for or reimbursed by ARRA dollars, and converted to fulltime equivalent jobs. This is different from first quarter reporting guidance, in which prime recipients were instructed to report employment activity that would not have occurred without the enactment of the Recovery Act. As a result of the December OMB guidance, prime recipients were also given to the end of the quarter to fully implement the new job calculation methodology.

"Given the late date of the federal guidance, the holidays, and the fact that schools were closed in December, some Ohio agencies will continue working with their subrecipients to convert to the new job calculations over the course of this quarter," Sabety said. "Some agencies were able to use the new methodology with their subrecipients immediately, but most need to work with sub-recipients on the conversion calculation."

This data does not reflect indirect jobs (jobs created by suppliers) or induced jobs (jobs created in the community as a result of a federal stimulus project).

The draft data only reflects programs that must report under Section 1512(a) of the Recovery Act. It does not reflect tax relief from ARRA to roughly 95 percent of Americans; Medicaid spending; child support initiatives, foster care and adoption assistance; unemployment compensation; supplemental security income; COBRA, Tax Credit Assistant Program (TCAP); Food Assistance Administration; and Temporary Assistance for Needy Families Emergency Fund.

Additional information about the 1512 reporting process is available at recovery.ohio.gov.
