Previous training materials stated that the Special Education Needs Assessment would be entered through ePeGs, but due to technical difficulties the process has changed. Like last year, you should submit your Needs Assessment in a word document to the IMACS web reply (firstname.lastname@example.org). ONLY THE NEEDS ASSESSMENT will be submitted this way.
The budget information for your grant will be completed in IMACS. Once you have completed the plan in ePeGs, (without the Needs Assessment) you will need to hit the submit button in ePeGs. This will pull over the information from ePeGs into IMACS. There is a slight delay in this process and you may need to wait a few hours before it appears in IMACS. At that point, the budget items can be entered in IMACS. You must also hit the submit button in IMACS once your budget is complete for your final submission.
