MONITORING PROCESS Monitoring is a four-step process 1. Self-Assessment 2. Desk Audit 3. Telephone Audit 4. On-Site Review
The Monitoring Process Self Assessment Desk Audit OFI or Questions? Phone Audit Site Visit College Selected NO YES NO Monitoring Summary Report NO YES Corrective Action Needed? End YES NO Submit Corrective Action Plan OBR Tracking Logs and Follow-up Received on Time? YES
SELF-ASSESSMENT The College self-assessment is the first step of the monitoring process. Local leadership teams should identify, review and organize all available documentation addressing essential evidence. A list of examples of essential evidence is included for your reference. If essential evidence supports a satisfactory rating, mark the appropriate box and list the evidence available in the space provided. This must be completed for each topic. (Example: courses of study).
SELF-ASSESSMENT If there is not substantive evidence to support a satisfactory rating, it must be indicated in the appropriate box in the O column. This represents an opportunity for improvement. To prepare for a possible on-site review, the team should organize a file of available evidence. The completed self-assessment document must be signed by the College Contact and received in the Ohio Board of Regents Office by the designated deadline. (Faxed copies are unacceptable.)
SELF-ASSESSMENT Self-assessments received after the deadline will be scheduled for an on-site visit. No documentation is to be included with the submission of the self-assessment. Questions should be directed to the Ohio Board of Regents Carl D. Perkins Representative.
DESK AUDIT Each of the Perkins recipients who has completed a Self-Assessment will have a desk audit performed by the OBR representative. This involves reviewing (1) all essential evidence listed on the Self-Assessment, (2) previous site visit reports, (3) performance measures, (4) the budget and budget narrative, (5) the four year performance plan and (6) any other relevant information.
TELEPHONE AUDIT The OBR representative will conduct a telephone audit if additional evidence or clarification is needed. This may require that the College provide additional supporting documentation.

FUNDING FORMULA How funding is distributed to states The split between secondary and postsecondary education The difference in adult and college funding
FUNDING FORMULA UNDER PERKINS III HISTORY Postsecondary allocation prior to FY2001 = 15% of state total allocation Beginning FY2001 Postsecondary allocation = 20% of state total allocation
FUNDING FORMULA UNDER PERKINS III Increased funding mandated a change to the existing allocation formula unless an alternate formula was approved by USDE
FUNDING FORMULA UNDER PERKINS III After 1 year of negotiating with USDE in attempt to maintain the previously utilized formula, Ohio’s request was denied RESULT Use of the federal postsecondary allocation formula
FUNDING FORMULA UNDER PERKINS III Section 132 of the 1998 Perkins Act Fall Pell Grants % of Technical FTE
FUNDING FORMULA UNDER PERKINS III DATA SOURCES FOR CALCULATIONS TOTAL FTE ENROLLMENT – HEI Report of FTE and Student Count Summaries TECHNICAL FTE ENROLLMENT – Career and Technical Education Career Clusters FALL PELL GRANT RECIPIENTS – OBR State Grants and Scholarships (as reported by campus financial aid offices)
FUNDING FORMULA UNDER PERKINS III CALCULATING CAMPUS ALLOCATIONS Total FTE x Technical FTE = % of Technical Enrollments % of Technical Enrollments x # of Fall Pell Grant recipients = # of estimated eligible recipients Campus estimated eligible recipients/total estimated eligible recipients = campus % of state Campus % of the state x estimated annual two-year campus Perkins Postsecondary allocation = YOUR CAMPUS ALLOCATION
FUNDING FORMULA UNDER PERKINS IV Section 132 of the 2006 Perkins Act Pell Grants Technical Concentrators
FUNDING FORMULA UNDER PERKINS IV DATA SOURCES FOR CALCULATIONS CAREER TECHNICAL STUDENT CONCENTRATORS – Students in HEI who meet the federal postsecondary definition of a career technical concentrator (CTE programs are defined as associate applied degrees) PELL GRANT RECIPIENTS – Students in HEI who have been identified as Career Technical Student Concentrators and are eligible for Pell grants
