Fiscal Accountability


PCCD stresses the importance of being accountable for all grant funds.  The following procedures are currently in place across all of PCCD's funding streams to ensure fiscal accountability with PCCD's grant funds.

 

Financial Back-up:  PCCD will periodically verify that grantee expenditures are consistent with approved budget categories, are eligible for reimbursement and that grantees are maintaining supporting documentation.  PCCD has implemented a process where grantees are notified that they are required to submit the financial back-up for some or all of the categories that are included in their Egrants fiscal report.  Grantees are only required to submit this back-up when they are specifically notified by PCCD.  Egrants users have the ability to attach documents to fiscal reports.  Preferably, all requested back-up will be attached to the fiscal report using the fiscal report attachment feature.


Subgrantee Payment:  All subgrantees are required, at a minimum, to submit quarterly fiscal reports.  PCCD will only make payments to reimburse actual expenditures reported on the fiscal reports.  If an agency is experiencing cash flow problems, they may submit fiscal reports monthly and PCCD will reimburse reported expenditures.

Line Item Detail:  PCCD's fiscal report allows grantees to include line item expenditure detail instead of just the overall budget category expenditures.  Grantees are required to provide line item expenditure detail consistent with the line items included in their approved budget.


On-site monitoring:  PCCD completes on-site fiscal monitoring of grants across all funding streams (state and federally funded projects).

Grantee risk classification:  PCCD utilizes a risk classification system to identify and focus the use of agency resources on those agencies that may be most in need of additional assistance.
