On June 22, 2020, RSA began a phased migration to our new website. This website continues to serve as our platform for sharing information and news related to RSA programs and our repository of guidance, technical assistance, and other resources. The new website includes much of the same content and some of the features of our legacy website. Since migrating, RSA has been adding more content and enhancing features to meet users’ needs. We look forward to receiving feedback and suggestions from our partners as we continue to build a useful website that is accessible to all users.
The RSA website also serves as the RSA Management Information System (RSAMIS) wherein grantees report performance data, fiscal data, and other information to RSA. Reporting instructions for the Case Service Report (RSA-911) and other information collections (e.g., SF-425 reports) are available.
Open Data Platform
On March 25, 2021, RSA announced to grantees its approach to Open Data. The Foundations for Evidence-Based Policymaking Act of 2018 (Evidence Act) requires changes to how Federal agencies manage and use the information they collect, emphasizing the strategic use of data. As required by the Evidence Act's Open Data Plan, RSA is committed to making the data it collects from grantees "open by default" and available to the public to use for a variety of purposes.
In the Spring of 2021, RSA will begin to publish reports submitted by grantees across Federal Fiscal Years 2016 through 2020 under View Data. These reports will be available to grantees with RSAMIS accounts as well as the public. The publishing process will be incremental and not all reports will be available at once. For formula awards, the Fiscal Unit will be publishing certain reports (e.g., RSA-2, RSA-17, RSA-692, and SF-425) while RSA Project Officers will do the same for other programs’ reports (e.g., RSA-7-OB, RSA-15, RSA-227, RSA-509, RSA-722, and RSA-AIVRS). RSA points of contact for each information collection are listed in the table at View Data.
RSA grantees only need an RSAMIS account if they need to report data through an approved information collection. RSA migrated the accounts of grantees who had been using the legacy RSAMIS to the new RSAMIS; however, these grantees are required to establish a new password; please follow the instructions for resetting your password. For grantees who require a new RSAMIS account to report data, please follow the instructions for requesting a new account. RSA will verify with agency personnel, who are responsible for grant administration, whether grantee accounts should be approved. If you have submitted a request for a new account, we recommend that you contact your RSA State Liaison to ensure the approval process has begun.
The phased migration of this website and the RSAMIS has been and will continue to be a complex information technology project. RSA thanks you, in advance, for your partnership and patience as we navigate this project. Please reach out to your RSA State Liaison with feedback or email RSAData@ed.gov.
