The Station Activities Benchmarking Study (SABS) survey collects standard financial and operational information for all public television licensees. This complete industry data should provide stations and national organizations with a tool to support decision-making, to understand performance issues, to identify improvement opportunities, and to move towards defined objectives.
All CPB-supported TV grant recipients are required to complete this survey. (Information about the Station Activity Survey will be sent to your station separately.)
Please note: the SABS survey questions refer to your station's Fiscal Year reporting period and should be consistent with your audited financial statements.
If you need assistance please contact CPB at (866) 635-4747 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
