As of February 2014, prior year Subpart FF Reporting Forms have been retired and replaced with a new form incorporating changes in the RY13 and later reporting requirements.  The new Subpart FF reporting form (Version 3) must now be used for all reporting years.  If you wish to resubmit a Subpart FF report from reporting year 2011 or 2012 you must resubmit using the Version 3 of the reporting form.  The new reporting form can be downloaded at: Reporting Form Instructions

If you attempt to upload a file but your file is not accepted by e-GGRT, it is generally because your file has a fatal flaw or is missing essential data. The reason why the file was not acceptable is displayed as a screen error on the upload page. For an example of a screen error message, see below.

Click on the Subpart FF: View Validation link to review your validation report. An explanation of the validation report and the process for correcting validation issues prior to submission is presented in Reporting Form Validation.

Once you have addressed the validation issues to the extent you believe necessary, and once you have completed any other applicable subparts, you must generate, review, certify, and submit your annual report as described in How to Submit an Annual Report. Please be sure that you complete your submission by certifying your submission using you password and confirmation question.
