Note: If the ISD receives a page error while submitting the final report, this means that one or more questions were not completed. Follow the instructions in the page error to complete the question(s) as needed.

The GSSG Final Report is now complete and submitted. MDE will review all final reports for evidence of progress and accept the reports. If any concerns are identified, MDE will return the final report to the ISD. ISDs should check the MDE comment box on the Getting Started page of the final report for additional information. Once MDE accepts the final report, the status Final Report Accepted by MDE will be displayed in the status history. Catamaran will then advance the GSSG Activity to GSSG Activity Completed.

If MDE returns the GSSG Final Report Form, update the form, and then resubmit (following steps 7 and 8). The status will change to Final Report Resubmitted to MDE.
