The City of Philadelphia’s Recovery Office successfully uploaded its 35 quarterly reports, on time (with one exception*), for the tenth ARRA reporting quarter ending December 31, 2011, thus satisfying the federal government’s reporting requirements. As part of the guidelines for completing the quarterly reports, otherwise known at 1512 reports, ARRA grant recipients must include the total amount of Recovery Act dollars received, total expenditures (including by subcontractors), and the total number of jobs created or retained, among other information.
For a more detailed explanation of the type of programs Recovery dollars are being used to help fund and support, as well as the Recovery Act’s overall impact on the City, we encourage you to read Stimulus at Work in Philadelphia: The Mayor’s Quarterly Update.

The next issue, highlighting the tenth quarter’s activities, will be released in early March ’12.
*This quarter, for the first time, the City failed to file one of its required reports. The reason was due to an expired registration (DUNS) number and once discovered, could not be renewed in time to meet the filing deadline of January 14, 2012; the problem is being rectified.
