·         Subscribe for Service

·         Submit Report

·         Replace Report

Step 1: Print these instructions. Then, follow the steps below.

a.    ARP_Template.xls, and

b.    GUIDANCE FOR COMPLETING THE ANNUAL REPORT ON PURCHASES OVER 500 Euros.doc.

At that point, you have two choices:

Step 4: Prepare your report
