Prime recipients are organizations that have received ARRA funds directly from the federal government. These organizations could be states, tribes, localities, counties,non-profit organizations or federal contractors/private sector companies. Even though the ARRA creates significant opportunities for these organizations, the fundsare accompanied by additional obligations beyond what is normally required to do business with the federal government. As such, companies must be awarethat the recent ARRA regulations provide strict compliancerequirements and could have a direct bearing on every aspect of their business operations.
