3 Page 3 Award Tracking Report - Purpose  Provides a Management Tool for Planning and Execution of the Grants Process  Purpose Track Award Actions Through Grants Online  Some Caveats The Award Tracking Report cannot summarize all of a Program Office/Officer’s Awards Requires applications to receive an award number (performed during conduct negotiations) prior to being listed on the Award Tracking Report. Summary information is not available directly from the Award Tracking Report. To get summary information, you must manipulate the data after extraction to Excel.

8 Page 8 Selecting Parameters  Funded Only A “Funded Award” is an award that has money, not one that has been signed Cannot get “Unfunded Only”  Recipient Name/City Use wildcards - % Not Case Sensitive  Congressional District Doesn’t make sense without state Precede single-digit districts with “0”, e.g. 01

9 Page 9 Selecting Parameters  Recipient Type Unreliable until migrated data is cleaned — Target Date: October 1, 2006  Signed Award Only Cannot get “Unsigned Award Only” Withdrawn/rejected actions are NOT reported  Award Start/End Dates Start Date on or after entered date End Date on or before entered date
