Subject: FY11 Part B Final Expenditure Report (FER)

Source: Special Education Finance

Intended Audience: Special Education Directors, Superintendents, Financial Personnel

Date: May 12, 2011

The FY11 Part B Final Expenditure Report (FER) is expected to be available for data entry May 16, 2011.  While the FER is not due until September 30, 2011, districts may submit the FER anytime before the due date.  However, please keep in mind that once an FER is created, the district will not be able to amend their current year (2010-11) budget application or make any additional payment requests.  Therefore, districts should ensure all Part B and Part B ARRA funds are budgeted and submit payment requests for all expended Part B and Part B ARRA funds before creating an FER. 

Remember, all Part B ARRA funds must be expended by September 30, 2011, and accounted for on the FY11 Part B FER. 

For examples of IDEA ARRA allowable expenditures, please view the DESE and MOCASE lists of examples at  

For information on completing and submitting the FY11 Part B FER, please view the ePeGs Part B Training Manual located at
