The online RCAP Resources Library has a variety of resources that are useful to small, rural drinking water and wastewater systems.
Important notice that pertains to Section 2 of this guide (namely CCR registration for borrowers)>CCR is Going Away -- What to Expect (UPDATE)
At the end of July 2012, the Central Contractor Registration (CCR) system is going away. CCR, along with Federal Agency Registration (FedReg), the Online Representations and Certifications Application (ORCA), and the Excluded Parties List System (EPLS), will be migrated into the new System for Award Management, or SAM.
For those of you familiar with this effort, you know it will reduce the number of passwords you need to remember, reduce the number of systems you need to enter and interact with, and reduce data redundancy by sharing the data across the award lifecycle. To help you better understand how this will work, SAM training will be available online in early May. Please visit SAM.gov for more information.
What does the transition to SAM mean for you? Here are answers to a few of your most pressing concerns.
I have a current CCR registration.
The above announcement was taken directly from the CCR News and Announcements section on the CCR website. You can visit that site for updates as they are given.
Links to forms that you may use for financial reporting are in the table below (same forms that are provided on the CD that accompanies the guide)
Summarizes the managerial and financial requirements for communities that are receiving U.S. Department of Agriculture Rural Utilities Services (RUS) loan funds for their water or wastewater utility. Focuses on the requirements for submitting management reports and financial statements and walks borrowers through the steps of completing the forms and submitting the reports and statements. Comes with a CD with blank forms that are easy to fill in. Also provides ways communities can monitor the financial health of their utilities.
