Beginning in Federal Fiscal Year 2003, the NCRA began requiring all Annual Reports and meeting minutes to be submitted using the electronic SAES-422 format via the NIMSS system.
NOTE: The person submitting the annual report MUST have editing authorization. If you do not have this authorization, contact your Administrative Advisor or the NIMSS system administrator, Christina Hamilton (firstname.lastname@example.org) to be assigned editing access. Each project can have up to three editors.
Please note that ALL NCRA projects/committees (NC, NCCC/NCERA, NCDC, and NCAC) are required to submit the SAES-422 form within 60 days of EVERY annual meeting. If you cannot meet this deadline, please contact the NCRA office in advance. Filling out the SAES-422 form allows all committee/project reports to be uniform in style and content. It also allows us to utilize the NIMSS system to its fullest potential, making the information easily accessible throughout the country.
Here's how to enter the information in NIMSS:
If you want to fill out a hard copy to cut/paste from before you put it into NIMSS, forms are available here. However, the official form MUST be submitted via NIMSS.
