Agencies receiving Federal funds through the Alaska Department of Education & Early Development must adhere to the regulations under the Federal Uniform Grant Guidance (UGG) (2 CFR, Part 200), the Federal agency's regulations (such as the Education Department's General Administrative Regulations), and applicable Federal and State statutes and regulations.
Uniform Grant Guidance (UGG)
The Federal Uniform Grant Guidance (2 CFR, Part 200) are regulations that establish rules that apply to all Federal grants, regardless of which Federal agency is providing the award. These regulations streamlined the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Circulars into one comprehensive policy guide.
The Uniform Grant Guidance identifies 55 "items of cost" that receive clarification regarding the allowability, in general, for using Federal funds (2 CFR, Subpart E - Cost Principles). In addition, this section of the regulations provides guidance on "basic considerations" to apply to all costs, listed or not listed.
Required Written Procedures under UGG
The Federal Uniform Grant Guidance (2 CFR, Part 200) requires all sub-recipients of Federal funds to document certain grant procedures. These written procedures will help the sub-recipient meet compliance by outlining the steps necessary to ensure allowable grant costs and methods such as general procurement standards.
Written procedures regarding the following areas are required. All sub-recipients must have these written procedures on file and the steps outlined in the procedures implemented.
The following documents include a description of the written procedure requirement and a list of suggested questions to answer when documenting procedures.
Education Department General Administration Regulations (EDGAR)
The Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) is a codification of the general and permanent rules published in the Federal Register by the executive departments and agencies of the Federal government. The code is divided into 50 titles that represent broad areas subject to federal regulation. Title 34 of the CFR, which pertains to the U.S. Department of Education (ED) and related Federal entities, is composed of several hundred parts. Parts 74-99 of that title are collectively known as the Education Department General Administrative Regulations (EDGAR). These parts contain regulations for administering discretionary and formula grants awarded by ED.
Title 34, CFR Parts 75-79, 81 to 86 and 97-99 EDGAR, is currently in transition.
- Grants Made Prior to 12/26/2014 - EDGAR Parts 74 and 80 still apply.
- Grants Made On or After 12/26/2014 - 2 CFR Part 200, which includes the substance formerly in parts 74 and 80, applies.
