State Agencies, Quasi State Agencies, and Public Colleges who are prime recipients are required to report the number of jobs paid with ARRA funds for the reporting quarter expressed as a number of Full-Time Equivalents (FTEs). OERR developed a jobs data collection tool and provided guidance to state agencies on how to collect jobs data from prime recipients, sub-recipients, and vendors in accordance with ARRA. Jobs data is reported by agencies and presented in summary format. The total number of jobs reported by State Agencies, Quasi State Agencies, and Public Colleges from January 1, 2013 to March 31, 2013 is 234.97 (initial data set).

The table below lists the number of jobs reported in all of the prior reporting periods. State Agencies, Quasi State Agencies, and Public Colleges report ARRA funded jobs expressed as a number of Full-Time Equivalents (FTEs) in each reporting period. Because the methodology uses a calculation to determine the number of FTEs, numbers can not be added across quarters.
Prime award recipient State Agencies, Quasi State Agencies, and Public Colleges reported cumulative expenditures of $688,200,421 through March 31, 2013, an increase of $172.5 million dollars in expenditures since the last reporting cycle.
Prime Recipients are required to report all ARRA funded sub-awards. Sub-awards less than $25,000 are reported in aggregate – agencies must report both the total number of sub-awards less than $25,000 and the total amount of these awards.
Sub-recipients who receive a sub-award greater than $25,000 report directly to FederalReporting.gov under Rhode Island’s delegated, decentralized model. Sub-recipients are required to provide greater detail on these awards.
Through March 31, 2013, 646 sub-awards totaling over $416 million dollars were issued by state agencies using ARRA funds.
Payments to vendors greater than $25,000 are reported in greater detail including a description of the product or the service provided and the amount of the payment to the vendor.
Over $205.9 million dollars in vendor payments have been paid by state agencies through March 31, 2013.
