SUBJECT:  Financial Updates



We received many inquiries from LEAs regarding the 2010-2011 NCLB Consolidated Budget Application.  Our IT Department is aware of the ePeGS errors and is working to get them resolved. 

Two major errors are now resolved: 



If your district has already submitted the application and need to make changes, contact your Grants Management Supervisor and request disapproval of the application.

Final Expenditure Reports (FERs) submitted after June 11, 2010 will not be approved until after July 6th.  Therefore, actual carryover will not be available for budgeting until FER approval has been granted.

If your district has funds budgeted in the administrative pool and/or need to issue purchase orders on July 1, you must submit the application and state in the comment box (within the budget pages) the budgetary items you are unable to include in the budget grid—state object codes and amount only.  This will allow your district to have “substantial approval” to obligate funds.  Once the FER is approved and carryover is available, your Grants Management Supervisor can disapprove your application to allow for the necessary changes. 

If your district does not need “substantial approval” to obligate funds by July 1, you may delay submission until Monday, July 12th at which time we should have the FERs approved and carryover available for budgeting.  Remember - an obligation occurs when a purchase order is dated or someone is on the job being paid a stipend or salary.  Any obligations prior to the substantially approved date will not be an allowable expenditure in the 2010-2011 program year.

We appreciate your patience.  For FER questions, please contact Federal Financial Management at 573-751-4420.  If you have other questions, please contact your Federal Grants Management Supervisor listed below: – 573-751-8289 Central – 573-751-9124 St. Louis area – 573-526-2582 Southeast – 573-751-8281 Kansas City area – 573-751-6762 Southwest – 573-751-4888 Northwest – 573-522-6268 Northeast
