In a September 15, 2011 memorandum to federal agencies, the U.S. Office of Management and Budget (Federal OMB) issued an order to spend remaining ARRA dollars quickly.  Specifically, federal agencies are to take steps to complete all ARRA-related projects by September 30, 2013; submit any waiver requests for projects that will not meet the deadline by September 30, 2012; and put plans in place for recovering all unused funds.  New York City conducted a national survey among state and local governments in order to represent the voice of recipients and help inform the discussion at the federal level.  The summary of findings was shared with members of Federal OMB, the Recovery Accountability and Transparency Board, and the White House.
