Preface

This manual provides guidelines and procedures for budgeting and expending Federal and State Grant funds. It is a compilation of State and Federal laws and local policies and procedures that are to be used for processing all financial and budget related items. These guidelines and procedures are supplemental to current policies as outlined in the District “Accounting/Purchasing Procedures” manual. The manual was prepared using input from the Texas Education Agency, Finance Office staff, and other District personnel. Although it is not all-inclusive and cannot address all situations, the manual does provide general information to assist with normal, everyday financial transactions. Any and all District personnel with financial duties are responsible for the contents.

Responsibilities

Grants management is in the Department of Curriculum and Instruction under the direction of the Sr. Director of Compliance & Standards and Department of Special Populations under the direction of the Sr. Director of Special Populations (IDEA grants). Both are responsible to the Superintendent, the McKinney Independent School District (“the District”, “MISD”) Board of Trustees and to the granting agencies for the financial and regulatory administration of all state and federal financial assistance to the District. Overall responsibility for submitting proposals and for executing and administering awards rests with the Deputy Superintendent. The District has adopted an institutional oversight model for state and federal financial assistance. The oversight model establishes lines of authority within the District related to financial transactions on government assistance received. There are three fundamental principles: 1. The Department of Curriculum and Instruction is the final approval authority for all grant activity other than IDEA grants, which falls under the Department of Special Populations. 2. Responsibility is defined as the authority to make a decision and be accountable for any outcomes associated with that decision. 3. Oversight is always distinct from the operating unit that makes the decisions. The overall responsibilities of the Grants Management function include, but are not limited to: a. Reviewing all grant applications that have a financial reporting or compliance requirement prior to submission for approval by the Deputy Superintendent; b. Establishing, communicating and promoting policies and procedures consistent with federal, state, and local regulations; c. Providing assistance to project managers for the preparation of grant applications; d. Exercising budgetary control of grant funds; e. Providing overall financial support and monitoring: and f. Providing overall compliance monitoring to include; • Maintaining an adequate internal control structure to ensure compliance with applicable laws and regulations related to the state and federal regulations; • Coordinating formal agency audits or interim reviews of grants by federal or state agencies, external/internal auditor(s); and McKinney ISD Grant Manual Drafted October 2010

Cash Management/Separation of Duties

McKinney ISD has established separation of duties in cash management. Funds from federal agencies are requested by the Federal Funds Budget Facilitator. Requests are reviewed by the Chief Financial Officer and requests are entered by the Accounting Department. Funds are verified by the Cash management department. Bank reconciliations are conducted by the Accounting department. Any discrepancies are resolved promptly. Disbursements are approved by the Senior Director of Compliance and Standards or Senior Director of Special Populations (IDEA only) and entered as a purchase order or check request by the Federal Funds Budget Facilitator. Purchase orders are reviewed by the Director of Purchasing. Check requests without purchase orders are reviewed by the Director of Accounting. The Board of Trustee’s officers are check signers for the district. Check stock and check signing software are secured by the Accounting department.

Supplement Not Supplant Procedures

McKinney ISD has implemented guidelines to ensure compliance with the federal fiscal requirement of supplement, not supplant. The purpose of the procedures is to ensure that the level of state and local support for programs remains at least constant and is not replaced by federal funds. Federal funds are used to supplement (add to, enhance, to expand, create something new, increase) the funds available from non-federal sources, and not to supplant (replace or take the place of) the existing non-federal funds. Federal funds may be used only to supplement or augment the educational programs generally offered with state and local funds. Federal funds may be used only to provide supplemental services that would not have been provided had the federal funds not been available. State or local funds which previously funded activities may not be diverted to another purpose simply because federal funds are now available to fund those activities. In other words, the use of federal funds may not result in a decrease in state or local funds for a particular activity, which, in the absence of the federal funds, would have been available to conduct the activity. Federal funds must supplement or augment that which must be provided by state law or SBOE rule, or any activities which have been adopted as policy by a local school board of education to fund from non-federal sources. If federal funds are used to enhance or expand a state mandate, SBOE rule, or local board policy, the federal supplementary activities must be separately identified and clearly distinguishable from the activities identified as necessary for implementing a state mandate, SBOE rule, or local board policy as outlined in the implementation plan.

Budget Process for Federal and State Grant Funds

The Grant Managers are responsible for overseeing the budget process for Federal Grants received by McKinney ISD. When allowable, indirect costs may be included when formulating budgets prior to application submission. The rates are determined by the Texas Education Agency (TEA) based upon information submitted using the Modified Total Direct Costs (MTDC) method and are effective for the period of July 1 – June 30 of each grant year. A comprehensive needs assessment is conducted annually and is used for developing all Federal and Grant Budgets. Depending on the grant, the budget process is either done during the writing of the grant or after amounts have been awarded. In each case, the Grant Manger has budget planning meetings with the various departments involved with the grant. Budget amendments are done with the input from the Grant Manager and the campuses involved. If a budget amendment is necessary during the plan year, the grant supervisor will submit an amendment to the appropriate entity. The following reasons are allowable for all Federal and Grant Funds: 1. 25% rule 2. Change in the number of funding positions 3. Change in program intent 4. Change in funding amount

Expenditure Object Codes

Expenditures should be classified by the major object classes according to the types of items purchased or services obtained. An expenditure identifies the nature and object of an account, or a transaction. The school district’s accounting records are to reflect expenditures at the most detail level, as depicted in the chart of accounts (4 digits) for accounting and Public Education Information Management System (PEIMS) reporting (actual data) purposes. The major expenditure areas are: 61XX - PAYROLL COSTS This major classification includes the gross salaries or wages and benefit costs for employee services. An employee is paid a salary or wage. The school district acts in a supervisory capacity over an employee and furnishes a working area and usually the equipment and materials necessary for the completion or performance of a task or service. Although an employee may work with more than one supervisor subsequent to, during, or after the normal employment period of hours, if the services or tasks performed are at the general direction of the school district, the amount paid to that employee is considered a payroll cost. 6112 Salaries or Wages for Substitute Teachers This code is used to classify the gross salary and wage expenditures for substitute teachers and may be used with Function 11 (Instruction) and Function 13 (Curriculum Development and Instructional Staff Development). 6118 Stipends - Professional This code is used to classify wages not defined elsewhere at the option of the school district. 6119 Salaries or Wages - Teachers and Other Professional Personnel This code is used to classify the gross salary and wage expenditures for teachers and other professional personnel. This includes: - Gross salary and wage expenditures - Wages paid to employees for performing duties beyond the normal working day - Amounts above the school district’s standard pay for additional certification requirements, such as a Bilingual teacher. 6121 Extra Duty/Overtime - Support Personnel This code is used to classify wages paid to support personnel for performing duties beyond the normal working day or for amounts above the school district’s standard pay for additional qualifications.

Fixed Asset Guidelines for Federal and State Grant Funds

All purchases of fixed assets must follow guidelines outlined in the District’s “Accounting/Purchasing Guidelines” manual. Items meeting the criteria of a fixed asset as described above must be tagged with a District asset tag. Tagging, reporting, and controlling the asset will follow the guidelines established in District administrative regulation CBF (Legal). Asset lists are maintained by the District Accounting department. This guidance refers to capitalization of cost with items purchased with Federal and Grant Funds. As a general rule this refers to equipment or software that exceeds $5000 and has a shelf life of more than 12 months. • Software: o Life of less than 12 months but more than $5000 in cost. In this case the initial set up fee would be capitalized, but the subscription fee would not be capitalized. o Any maintenance fee would also not be capitalized. o Both subscription and maintenance fee would be coded to 6200 or 6300 depending on the arrangement. o Slightly different for web-based software: ƒ This may be one web-site with individual passwords. ƒ If the per unit cost is $500 and there are 10 users, then the cost is $5000. You may have to capitalize this. • Definition of a unit: o In some instances a unit can be defined as a single work station or a full lab. [Something like a computer on wheels (COW) would be one unit because it is used for one purpose, in one setting, at one time]. o However, if the COW is used solely for a recharging station and the computers are taken out each day and dispersed to several rooms throughout the building then it is considered an individual computer and would not be capitalized. • Data management systems with subscriptions of one year o Maintenance fees that do not last longer than twelve months, are not capitalized. o However, if the relationship (even informally) continues past 12 months, it needs to be capitalized.

Accounts Payable Guidelines

Federal and Grant Funds must be expended for programs, activities, and strategies that are scientifically based on research and that meet the needs for the students served.

All costs must be reasonable and necessary to carry out the intent of the program. A. Purchase Orders 1. All encumbrances and expenditures of approved funds shall occur on or after the effective submission date of the application or amendment (date application or amendment was submitted to the Agency, or the first day grant funds are available for obligation, whichever is later). 2. Follow district guidelines as outlined in “Accounting/Purchasing Guidelines” manual for processing purchase orders requisitions. 3. Campuses requesting purchases thru NCLB grant funds must complete the “Reimbursement Checklist”. (See example section) 4. A requisition MUST be approved prior to a purchase being made. If this is not done, the campus may be responsible for the cost, NOT grant funds. 5. Requisitions need to have the following approvals: a. Campus principal OR Special Education Coordinator if IDEA funds b. Sr. Director of Compliance & Standards OR Sr. Director of Special Populations if IDEA funds 6. All requisitions will be processed by Federal Funds Budget Facilitator 7. No changes, substitutions, or increase of funds can be made to a purchase without prior approval and must be processed by Federal Funds Budget Facilitator. 8. All grant-funded purchases must be received in time to substantially benefit the project during the current grant period. LEAs may no longer obligate funds for goods and services during a grant period if the goods and services will be delivered after the ending date of the grant. Equipment purchased with grant funds must be received, installed, and put into service before the ending date of the grant. All obligations and receipt of goods must occur within the grant period. B. Consultants / Contracted Services 1. All consulting agreements must go through the Business Office. 2. All consultants must be in the vendor system established by the district. 3. Consultants are never paid in advance. This should not be reflected in any agreement made with consultant. Payment is made after services are rendered.

(See example section). 3. Both employee and supervisor/principal/director must sign mileage reimbursement. 4. Submit approved original form noting odometer mileage or online mapping source to Federal Funds Budget Facilitator for processing. 5. The expectation is that one car is used for mileage reimbursement when individuals are traveling to the same event. There may be exceptions from time to time. D.

Purchases must also comply with district guidelines outlined in the District “Accounting/Purchasing Guidelines” manual. Campuses requesting purchases thru NCLB grant funds must complete the “Reimbursement Checklist”. (See example section) E. Individual Reimbursements Reimbursements to individuals purchasing items with grant funds are discouraged. The District recommends the use of a purchase order for all expenditures.

Original detailed receipts are required. F. Petty Cash Disbursements Petty cash disbursements cannot be used to acquire Federal Grants goods or services. Payments must be through the District Accounts Payable processes.

A. General Travel Guidelines 1. In general, “travel” is defined as travel outside the District boundaries where you are acting as a representative of the District. In this case the District may reimburse you for some or all of your qualified expenses. Approval to travel must be obtained before taking any trip as noted above, regardless of expenses requested. 2. A “Travel Advance/Estimate/Reconciliation” form should be completed for any travel outside District boundaries. It should be prepared allowing time to obtain all required levels of approvals/signatures, and then be forwarded to the Federal Funds Budget Facilitator for processing. (See example section). 3. Documentation as to the purpose of the trip must be attached to the Travel Advance before submitting it. A copy of a brochure, flyer, registration or entry form is acceptable. Documentation must show the location, dates, and times of the event, and any meals or other expenses that are provided. 4. Registration and other non-travel expense must be paid by purchase order. Proper documentation must be included as an attachment to the purchase order. All special instructions must be clearly noted. These types of purchase orders should also be prepared in advance and in accordance to the registration deadlines. 5. Payments for actual expenses requested on the travel request form are payable only to the employee noted on the travel request. 6. Travel expenses may not be paid from grant funds if the registration is paid out of local funds. 7. Travel expenses are composed of the costs incurred to reach a destination and return. These costs are as follows: a. Lodging 1. This is the cost of the rental of a room or rooms for District employees, students, or administrators. The original hotel bill or receipt must be furnished after the trip. The hotel bill should clearly indicate the cost assigned to the “InCharge/District Representative”. Texas Hotel Occupancy Tax will not be paid, as well as the Texas State Sales Tax on hotel parking. The District is exempt from this District will pay state sales tax on out of state travel and no other individual should be included. An exemption form is included in the manual for your convenience. Room service, laundry, phone calls, internet service, etc. should not be claimed as trip/travel expenses. 2. Hotel accommodations should be at the promotional event/school rate, not to exceed $85 per person, per night. Multiple rooms should be booked at the best rate possible.

Original detailed receipts must be submitted – Texas State Sales Tax, gratuity, tips are not reimbursable expenses. 3. Complete “Meals Per Diem Worksheet”. (See example section). c. Transportation 1. This is the cost of traveling to a destination and returning while on District business. In determining mileage, the starting point is the individual’s school or office even though the individual may actually leave from his/her residence. If the cost of airfare, bus fare, parking fees, or taxi fare exceeds the advance request, the excess may be claimed for reimbursement upon returning from the trip, if properly documented. Documentation includes receipts, where applicable, and explanation of excess. B. Registration 1. Registration should be paid by purchase order. 2.

7)

Eligible when traveling overnight only. Please separate original itemized receipts by date and tape to 8-1/2 x 11 sheets of paper. Credit card receipts will not be accepted since they do not itemize the purchase. Hotel receipts (meals charged to your room/room service) will not be accepted since they do not itemize the purchase – be sure to request the itemized receipt. Room service services charges are generally not reimbursed. Meal reimbursement rates for overnight travel include the actual costs for meals not to exceed $36 per day per local policy. If any meals are provided while at a conference or meeting, or as part of a lodging package, the traveler is not eligible for the related M&IE allowance. Unused funds cannot be carried over from one day to the next. Since MISD is exempt from Texas state sales tax, be sure to present the sales tax exempt form to the restaurant so you will not be charged sales tax. Texas state sales tax will not be reimbursed on in-state travel. This form can be obtained from your campus or the purchasing department. Tips or gratuities are not reimbursable. The exception to this is a mandatory service charge imposed in connection with a meal (I.E. large group) only if there is no option to refuse the charge.

Travel allowances for overnight travel, where the traveler receives the per diem for meals, regardless of the actual amount expended, are not allowable in Texas. Grantees must adhere to the guidelines stated above in lieu of a travel advance. Please complete the “Meals Per Diem Worksheet” and submit with your receipts when requesting reimbursement or reconciling your travel advance. Send to Kim Yarovoy, Federal Programs, Central Office within 10 days after completion of travel. For additional information access the following: http://www.tea.state.tx.us/opge/grantdev/admin.html

Time and Effort Requirements

School districts are required to maintain auditable "time and effort" documentation that show how each employee paid with federal funds spent his or her compensated time. Such documentation are written, after-the fact (not estimated or budgeted) documentation of how the time was spent. Time and effort reports should be prepared by any staff with salary charged (1) directly to a federal award, (2) directly to multiple federal awards, or (3) directly to any combination of a federal award and other federal, state or local fund sources. Semi-annual certifications are required for personnel whose compensation is funded solely from federal funds. These certifications document that he/she has been working solely in activities supported by the federal funds (although some district policies require monthly reports for such personnel). The certification must (1) cover a semi-annual period (e.g., September-January and February-June, or September-February and March-August), (2) identify the program, and (3) be signed and dated by an employee and supervisor having first-hand knowledge of the work performed by the employee. Time and effort reporting guidelines are specified in the U.S. Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Circulars A-87 and A-133. The circulars provide instructions to auditors performing Single Audits of states, local governments, and non-profit organizations. OMB87 establishes standards for charging employee compensation for federal grants. OMB A133 lists the compliance requirements for federal education programs, including Title I Part A.

Summary of Allowable Campus Title I, Part A Expenditures

Title I funds are to be used for the purpose of student achievement, staff development and to build parent capacity to better support their child’s educational attainment. In general, Title I funds are to be used to enhance the regular school program and should be consistent with the school educational plan. When determining if expenditures are appropriate, ask the following questions: • •



How does this expenditure directly support student achievement? How does this expenditure directly support staff professional development? (Pursuant to Federal rules, SIP schools are required to budget 10% of the school Title I allocation for professional development. MISD encourages all other schools to budget at least 5% for staff development purposes.) How does this expenditure increase the participation of parents in school activities or assist parents to support student achievement? (Consistent with Federal guidelines, MISD requires all schools to spend 1% of their Title I allocation on parent activities.)

McKinney ISD follows expenditure guidelines for federal programs as set forth in OMB Circular A-87. It adheres to a standard that all expenditures must be reasonable, ordinary and necessary in order for a cost to be reimbursed. The attached chart provides a partial listing of expenditure purposes for which schools have requested guidance in the past under Title I guidelines. If a campus is unsure if a proposed expenditure meets guidelines, please contact Geoff Sanderson in the Department of Curriculum and Instruction.
