Each fund within the grant has one or more indices. When a grant is closed, all indices within each fund are closed. Each fund title is changed to begin with “FROE”. Then the grant is closed. All reports and other documents are due.

6 Fund Closeout A grant may require a new fund for each year it is in operation. A new fund is opened, and as of a certain date, all grant expenses are charged to the new fund/index. The old fund/index is no longer used for future charges. 6

7 Fund Closeout Grant Code XXXXX-Status “A” Fund 1 FROE Index 1 -closed Index 2 -closed Fund 2 Index 1 Fund 3 Index 1 Index 2 Index 3 7 Note that In this example, Fund 1 has been closed. Funds 2 and 3 remain open. The indices in Funds 2 and 3 continue to receive expenses for the grant.

8 Why Close a Grant or Fund Immediately after it Ends? Decrease your workload Remain on good terms with your sponsor Remain in compliance with Federal regulations 8

9 Workflow Process 9

10 Department Closeout Duties STEP ONE: When you get a workflow stating that your fund is ending, you need to determine whether or not this is correct. 10

11 Department Closeout Duties - Determining What is Ending: Read your Notice of Grant Award. This will tell you when the grant ends. If you have a SNAP award [Streamlined Non Competing Application Process] the fund should be extended if the grant is not ending. 11

12 Department Closeout Duties - Determining What is Ending: For Health Science Center grants, look in FRAGRNT under the User defined tab. It may say “has Expanded Authority”, “Doesn’t have expanded authority”, or “Budget period needs new index”. Discuss with PI to determine status. Ask your Fiscal Monitor. 12

13 If the Grant is continuing, but the fund is ending: Find out the status of the new fund for the grant. Move all recurring expenses. Review all expenses. 13

14 If the Grant is Ending: Move recurring expenses to a different index Remove all (unused) encumbrances Review all expenses – Move in or out expenses that need to be moved 14

15 Will there be a Loss? F&A can be a significant expense. If you need to move or add expenses to your grant before it can be closed, F&A may change. To avoid a loss in a cost reimbursement grant, do not allow your direct expenses to exceed your direct cost budget. Direct expenses are all expenses in all accounts except 89Z0 – F & A Expense. 15

16 Will there be a Loss? With Fee for Service contracts or grants: – Your revenue is dependant upon the services provided. – If costs exceeded the revenue for the services provided, there will be a loss. 16

17 Will there be a Loss? When you are unsure: – Of accurate F&A – If the contract or grant has a loss for any other reason Check with your Fiscal Monitor 17

18 Are related reports/documents complete? PI submits progress report directly to sponsor Documents are submitted as required The account administrator documents in workflow that this has been done The Fiscal Monitor sends the Reconciliation Form and patent if applicable to the department for completion 18
