Overview of Changes Simplified Layout Removed confusing duplicate links Removed excess old data from view Easier to find requests needing action More Transparency Increased reporting Notes for allocation change Non-ARRA request more tied to budget Easier to keep track of balance
Allocation Balance At top of each request page for ARRA, Non-ARRA, and Ed Jobs
Non-ARRA Request Changes Jobs reporting is still NOT required Should track better with budget lines Broken into 7 categories Some grants will use fewer If a category does not appear, it was not considered allowable. Please contact your grant’s coordinator for questions If travel costs for professional development are budgeted and tracked with your professional development costs, they can be reported together
