NASA has formulated new guidelines which are aimed to simplify and expand NASA Insignia use by NASA grantees (including cooperative agreement recipients, collectively herein, “Grantees”).
The Payment Management System (PMS) is a tool to help grant recipients draw down funds and file the Federal Financial Report (FFR).
Federal Financial Reports (SF-425)
The grantee requests funds via Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) / Payment Management System (PMS) using their User Identification and Password. The Federal Financial Report (SF-425) electronically submitted by grantees will be for reporting purposes as it applies to the originating procurement requirements.
The FFR 425 must be filed within 30 days of the end of the quarter (instead of the 45 days allowed for filing the PSC 272). If the 425 is not filed within the allotted time, the PMS account will be blocked from further drawdowns until the report is filed. Reporting cash transaction data using the FFR 425 replaces the use of the Federal Cash Transaction Report (PSC272 / SF-272). Additional information and training are available on the Payment Management System web site at https://pms.psc.gov/. The PMS help desk number is 1-877-614-5533.
