• The documents below are informational materials to assist districts to understand federal grant financial management responsibilities. The powerpoint tutorials were developed by teams of Intermediate School District and Michigan Department of Education personnel and are focused on the areas of federal grant management where districts receive the most frequent audit findings - cash management, procurement, timekeeping and allowable costs. They will provide the reader with a basic understanding of the requirements for appropriate federal grant management. The Resources document contains links to the U.S. Department of Education documents if you would like further information. The LEA Fiscal Review Tool is a handy checklist to help districts put into place the appropriate processes and procedures to start the implementation of a sound federal financial management system.
