FY 2017 Annual Results Report (ARR) Guidance

The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) Office of Food for Peace (FFP) is pleased to share with you the final fiscal year (FY) 2017 Annual Results Report (ARR) guidance. Please note that this year there is separate guidance for development and emergency/International Food Relief Partnership (IFRP) awards. FFPMIS is scheduled to open for reporting on Wednesday, September 20, 2017.

For FY 2017 results reporting, FFP updated the ARR guidance to improve the overall quality and consistency of reporting on progress towards achieving results. As a reminder, development and emergency awards that use cash, voucher and/or local and regional procurement (LRP), are required to directly input data on cash, voucher and LRP into FFPMIS via the Actuals tab (accessible through the Program search criterion). If a development or emergency award programmed a Specialized Food Product, it must report on the product and the corresponding planned/reached beneficiaries by age within the 'Nutrition' Program Area/Element. 

ARRs for both development and emegency awards are due no later than Monday, November 6, 12:00pm EST. FFP encourages awardees to take advantage of the various checklists in the annexes to assist with quality reporting, in particular Annex A, the Standardized Annual Performance Questionnaire (SAPQ), which presents updates on indicators. 

The guidance and associated templates are available via the Food for Peace website. Access them here:

  • Awards signed less than three months prior to the ARR submission due date for the FY that they were awarded, are not required to submit an ARR for the reporting FY. 
  • Questions related to the ARR and SAPQ may be directed to Questions related to individual awards and performance should be directed to the AOR. 
  • Awardees are required to submit all ARR information through FFPMIS. FFPMIS Users' Guides can be found on the FSN Network website. Questions or problems related to FFPMIS may be directed to the Help Desk at The Help Desk hours are Monday to Friday from 9 AM to 5 PM EST, not including holidays.
