As a recipient of federal funding, The University of Texas at Austin is subject to the following reporting requirements for the following classifications of federal funding:

  • The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA)
    The goal of the ARRA is to create new jobs, save existing jobs, and foster economic growth. University purchases funded wholly or partially with federal funds that are subject to ARRA reporting require that the awarded vendor comply with all applicable provisions of ARRA. If an award exceeding $25,000 is issued to a vendor, the vendor must identify the jobs created and/or retained as a result of receipt of ARRA funds. Information is reported by the university to the federal government. For more information about ARRA reporting, see the Office of Sponsored Projects’ American Recovery and Reinvestment Act – ARRA website.
