Subject: REMINDER: FY13 Special Education Part B Entitlement Final Expenditure Report (FER) due September 30, 2013

Source: Special Education Finance

Intended Audience: Special Education Directors, Financial Administrators, Superintendents

Date: September 24, 2013

The 2012-13 Special Education Part B Entitlement FER is due on or before September 30, 2013.  Please note that if the 2012-13 Special Education Part B Entitlement FER is not submitted by the due date, the LEA will not be allowed to access their 2013-14 year funds until it has been submitted.  For more information regarding this requirement, please see http://dese.mo.gov/am/fas/documents/FAS-11-017.pdf.  

The FER grid should include federal expenditures for all payments through September 30, 2013, that were obligated prior to June 30, 2013.  For step-by-step instructions on completing and submitting the FY13 Part B FER, please review the ePeGs Final Expenditure Report Training Guide FY13 located at http://dese.mo.gov/divspeced/Finance/partbentitlement.html.

Remaining unexpended Part B funds from the FY13 grant may be carried over and expended in 2013-14.  However, in order for carryover funds to appear in 2013-14, the district must amend their FY14 Part B Budget Application once the FY13 Part B FER is approved.

Please note that Maintenance of Effort (MOE) for 2012-13 can only include non-federal special education expenditures from July 1, 2012, through June 30, 2013.   

Please be sure the FY13 Part B FER is accurate and accounts for all special education expenditures before it is submitted as there will be no FY13 Part B FER revisions allowed unless there is an audit/monitoring finding or an error in the ePeGs system that directly affects the FER.
