How and When to Submit an Annual Report
Every State authority must report the eligible contracts it anticipates for its coming fiscal year. These annual reports are due 30 days before the end of the authority’s current fiscal year. Authorities must also amend reports as this information changes.
Submit Contracts and Amendments
State authorities submit contracts and contract amendments for filing or prior approval using the Contract Submission System (CSS).
