If data we would like to report becomes available after we have submitted our progress report, should we include the data in a future progress report?

No. Per normal reporting guidance, do not use a future reporting period’s progress report to report activities that took place during the current reporting period. If data becomes available after you have submitted your progress report, you have two options:

  • If data changes need to be made and your progress report has not yet been approved in the Grants Management System (GMS), contact your OVW Program Specialist to request changes through the change-request process in the GMS.
  • If your progress report has been approved in the Grants Management System (GMS), reach out to your OVW Program Specialist and, if needed, VAWA MEI can make the data changes when we receive the data.
