Grants Finance works with State Education Department offices to administer State and federal grant programs. Grants Finance is responsible for the financial management of grants awarded to local agencies, and other SED offices are responsible for ensuring that the activities funded by the grants are planned and implemented appropriately. For information regarding grant program requirements, please refer to the grant application and supporting documents or to the program contact listed on the grant award notice.
2/21/13 - Agency Registration in the Federal System for Award Management: Beginning in 2013, an agency must obtain a DUNS number and register in the federal System for Award Management (SAM) in order to be awarded federal funds. Failure to register in SAM or to renew the registration annually may delay the awarding and/or payment of federal funds from the Department. Please go to http://www.oms.nysed.gov/cafe/guidance/sam.html for more information.
8/7/12 - Final Expenditure Reports For ARRA Grants: As noted in previous guidance, the FS-10-F Long Form must be used for all grants funded by ARRA except for the Education Jobs Fund and Race to the Top. (Final expenditure reports for 2011-12 EdJobs and RTTT are to be submitted online at http://portal.nysed.gov/.) Since local agencies must maintain internal records of expenditure details in a manner consistent with the internal pages of the FS-10-F Long Form even when using the FS-10-F Short Form, those that sent in final expenditure reports on FS-10-F Short Forms should be able to readily resubmit FS-10F Long Forms.
