A. The Grants Accountant will review each federal award at the time an account is being established. The reporting dates will be noted and written on a card attached to the left side of the grant folder.

1. A copy of the progress report (preferably through e-mail)
2. A copy of the transmittal letter (or CC on the e-mail)
