MA UFR Extensions Must Be Submitted On the OSD website

AAFCPAs would like to make Human & Social Services clients aware that effective June 30, 2022, the Massachusetts Operational Services Division (OSD) will no longer accept extension requests for the submission of the UFR, MAB allocation requests and waiver requests through the UFR eFiling system.  All requests must be submitted using OSD’s web-based system which is located on OSD’s website.

The Uniform Financial Statements and Independent Auditor’s Report (UFR) which contractors must file with OSD on an annual basis is due by the 15th day of the fifth month following your year end.

All requests must be completed on OSD’s new web-based system. The request must be completed prior to the original due date. Approval or denial of this request will be emailed to the contractor.

OSD may in exceptional circumstances, grant one extension of the filing deadline for submission of the UFR reporting requirements. An extension request must exhibit credible cause beyond the control of the contractor such as serious illness of key financial staff, breach of contract by the independent auditor, or a natural disaster. The three causes noted above can be completed via dropdown.  There is also another dropdown that allows for an expanded reason.

If you have any questions please contact: Hui-Ting Grady, CPA at 774.512.4106,; or your AAFCPAs Partner.
