Federal Fiscal & Reporting Requirements Stolen From: Janice Hay, Finance Coordinator Amended by: Amelia Courts Title III Directors Conference May 2009
Time and Effort If federal funds are used for salaries time distribution records must be kept Must demonstrate that employees paid with federal funds actually worked on the specific federal program Type of documentation depends on the number of cost objectives the employee worked on These cost objectives must be connected to the employees salary source What is a cost objective? –A specific grant award, or other category of costs, that requires the grantee to track specific cost information
Time and Effort (Contd) If an employee works on a single cost objective: –Semi-Annual Certification –Signed by employee and supervisor every six months –Example: I hereby certify that for the period January 1, 2009 through June 30, 2009 one-hundred percent (100%) of my time and effort was spent on Title III Administration.
Time and Effort (Contd) If an employee works on multiple cost objectives: –Personnel Activity Report (PAR) –After-the-fact-record –At least monthly –Total activity for which the employee is compensated –Signed and dated by employee (supervisor may also sign)

Time and Effort (Contd) Quarterly comparisons of actual costs to budgeted distributions –If a variance of 10% or greater exists Adjust expenditures to reflect costs of the actual time reported. In order to minimize future differences, adjust estimated distributions for future payrolls to activity performed in the previous quarter. This should help minimize the difference in actual wages paid to time recorded. –If difference is less than 10%, may make adjustment annually
Time and Effort (Contd) EXAMPLE 1EXAMPLE 2 Hours as Recorded on Time and Effort Records 220 Hours Title III 300 Hours local 350 Hours Title III 170 Hours local % of Total 42%58%33%67% Adjustment of expenditures for prior quarter required NOYES Amount of quarterly adjustment required None (Annual adjustment is necessary when variance <10%) 17% of salary expense for the quarter (or $1,912.50) should be moved from Title III to local Adjustment of budget for future payments required NOYES Amount of adjustment required NO 67% of $11,250 = $7, % of $11,250 = $3, PERIOD: January-March, 2009 SALARY: $45,000 annually/$11,250 per quarter (Includes fringe) TOTAL HOURS FOR PERIOD: 520 (Includes holidays and/or leave hours taken) BUDGETED AND PAID:50% Title III and 50% local ($5,625 Title III and $5,625 local)
Time and Effort-Example of PAR Day of Month Number of hours worked by funding source Annual/Sick/Holiday Hours (Do Not Include in Total Hours) Total Hours Title IIIlocal 1224 AL H Etc. Totals % of Total 40%60% This example calculates the variance based on hours actually worked. If a variance occurs and the prior quarters payroll records require an adjustment, the adjustment will be made to all wages paid, so the adjustment will then also align the payment of leave taken to correspond to hours worked.

Maintenance of Effort Time and Effort Records are not required for contractual employees To maintain as much control as possible over federal funds, it is important for the LEA to develop clear, transparent and detailed contracts that clearly delineate why services are reasonable and allowable under the Title III program. Maintenance of Effort records will be monitored as part of Consolidated Monitoring
