The Agricultural Research, Extension and Education Reform Act of 1998 (AREERA) requires approved extension and research plans of work from Extension and Research to receive federal funding. AREERA outlines specific guidelines for these plans of work.

The AREERA plans of work pertains only to the Smith-Lever 3(b)&(c), Hatch, Evans-Allen and 1890 Extension funds. If there is a substantive change in planned programs then a Plan of work Update should be submitted to CSREES for review by July 1, before the beginning of the next fiscal year. 

In addition, an Annual Report of Accomplishments and Results is due on or before March 1 of each year.

Missouri submits a combined report that includes 1862 Agricultural Experiment Station Research (University of Missouri), 1890 Cooperative Research Programs (Lincoln University), 1862 University of Missouri Extension and 1890 Cooperative Extension Program (Lincoln University).
