RUS’s New Digital Data Collection System

The Rural Utilities Service (RUS) has transitioned from forms-based data submission to digital submission.  RUS has created a short guide explaining the change for electric and telephone borrowers.  From RUS:

All RUS year-end financial and operating reports for Electric Borrowers and Telecommunications Borrowers that file annually are due by March 31, of the following year. All Telecommunications Borrowers that file quarterly reports must submit their quarterly reports no later than 30 days after the end of each quarter. The Data Collection System (DCS) is located at: https://dcs.sc.egov.usda.gov.

Additional guidance for electric borrowers is found here: https://www.rd.usda.gov/files/UEP_Support_DCS.pdf
