  • Forms 50-773A and 50-773B - Biennial Progress Report Form.
    [FORMS REVISION PROPOSED] (Updated 1-12-2018)

    To be filled out by agreement holders and submitted by an authorized representative of each company to the school district each even-numbered year. The Comptroller will likely set June 15, 2018 as the due date for this form in 2018. The Comptroller's office has proposed two versions of the Form 50-773 to replace the existing Form 50-773A. New Form 50-773A will collect information for projects with applications deemed complete prior to January 1, 2014 ("three-digit projects"), and Form 50-773B will collect information for projects with applications deemed complete after that date ("four-digit projects"). The proposed forms would be adopted as electronic-only spreadsheets and hard copy paper Forms 50-773A or 50-773B will no longer be accepted. The forms will also reduce duplicative filings for projects with multiple agreement holders by permitting agreement holders in the same combined group to select a single agreement holder to report on behalf of the entire combined group. The proposed form and proposed accompanying rule change in TAC 9.1052 would also permit the Comptroller's office to update periodically certain marked areas of the adopted forms, such as due dates, cut-off dates and reporting years. The Comptroller's office proposed revisions were published in the Texas Register January 12, 2018. A thirty-day public comment period follows, ending on February 11, 2018. Copies of the proposed Form 50-773A and Form 50-773B are posted below. School districts will use data from these forms to complete the "CDR" form they are required to submit to the Comptroller's office (see below).
