A. System of Payments / Use of Insurance / Program Income
___X_ does (check as applicable)
_____ does not (check as applicable)
have a system of payments for Part C services under 20 U.S.C. 1432(4)(B) which may include use of public and/or private insurance or family fees, such as a sliding scale. Any family fees are treated as 'program income' for purposes of 34 CFR §80.25
and are not included in the State's determination of State and local expenditures for purposes of 20 U.S.C. 1437(b)(5)(B). Note: If the State has adopted new or has revised its existing policies and procedures regarding its system of payments, it must
submit these new and/or revised policies and procedures under Item 7 in Section II.A above.
B. Restricted Indirect Cost Rate/Cost Allocation Plan Information
(Note: To be completed if Lead Agency is not a State Educational Agency.)
If the lead agency is not a State educational agency (as well as any outlying areas that have the Department of Interior as its cognizant Federal agency, even if an SEA) check the applicable status below (more than one check mark may be necessary) and
enclose appropriate documentation for this Federal Fiscal Year.
_____ The lead agency has a final restricted indirect cost rate or cost allocation plan that has been approved by the State lead agency's cognizant Federal agency and is in effect for this Federal fiscal year (FFY) (ending on June 30, 2010).
(Attach a copy of the approved restricted indirect cost rate agreement or cost allocation plan.)
_____ The lead agency has either a provisional or final restricted indirect cost rate or cost allocation plan that expires or expired on _________ and the State is in the process of negotiating a new restricted indirect cost rate agreement or
cost allocation plan that will be in effect for the period ____________________.2 The State lead agency will continue to charge or bill the Part C grant using the provisional or previously approved final restricted indirect cost rate or cost
allocation plan until a new rate or plan is negotiated and approved by the State's cognizant Federal agency, at which point the State lead agency must make appropriate adjustments for applicable FFYs. The State acknowledges that a final restricted
indirect cost rate may result in an adjustment of the final audited expenditures allowable to be charged to the Part C grant and the Department's approval of this FFY Part C application with an expired or provisional restricted indirect cost rate does
not constitute approval of that rate as the final rate for the lead agency for this FFY. When a final restricted indirect cost rate is approved, the lead agency must submit to OSEP: (1) a copy of the "final" restricted indirect cost rate agreement; and
(2) details of adjustments made to past GAPS draw downs in light of the "final" rate. (Attach a copy of the previously approved restricted indirect cost rate agreement or cost allocation plan.)
X No indirect costs are charged to the Part C grant. The total amount of the Federal Part C grant is used for allowable direct costs.
_____ Other, explanation attached.
2 : A "provisional" indirect cost rate is a temporary rate established for a future prospective period of time to permit budgeting, obligations, and payment of funds by awarding agencies until such time as the actual indirect costs can be
determined and a final rate is established for the applicable period; provisional rates are subject to adjustment by issuance of a "final" rate based on actual indirect costs incurred for the period (usually the organization's fiscal year).
