Non-Allowable Costs: Federal Funds State-Flow Through Funds Third party costs Costs included in the calculation of the Unrestricted Indirect Cost Rate 22

23 Benefits of MCRCS Costs are per participant which makes it easier to tie the costs back in the case of an audit PCG is able to perform detailed desk reviews on the data submitted to ensure that you are claiming all allowable costs Since the individual edit checks are done online, it allows for you to have more time to complete the financials 23

24 Financial Frequently Asked Questions 24 Q: I need to made revisions to my financials that I certified, but it is now locked. How can I make changes? A: You must contact PCG. If the claim has not been processed, we can roll-back your quarter. If the claim has been submitted, we may be able to file an adjustment for your district depending on whether the costs are increasing or decreasing. Q: I added a new staff person to the RMTS website on April 15 th. I am entering financial information for the July-September quarter and this person is still not appearing. Why? A: This is because there is no time study for the July-September quarter and the staff pool list certified for the April – June quarter is also used for the July- September quarter.

25 Financial Frequently Asked Questions (Cont.) 25 Q: Bob is listed on the financial spreadsheet, but left the district half-way through the quarter. Since he had a direct replacement (Frank), whose costs do I claim? A: You may claim the costs for Bob up until the day he was replaced by Frank. After that day, you may claim the costs for Frank through the rest of the quarter. You may not claim both participant costs at the same time since they are only filling one position. Q: There are professional dues and fees that were incurred for Bob Barker, but there is no field to enter these next to his name. Where do I enter them? A: You must enter these costs in the “Quarterly Other Costs” section and include them in the job category section that Bob was listed under.
