Subject: REMINDER: FY12 Part B Final Expenditure Report (FER) due September 30, 2012

Source: Special Education Finance

Intended Audience: Special Education Directors, Financial Administrators, Superintendents

Date: September 25, 2012

The 2011-12 Part B FER is due on or before September 30, 2012.  Please note that if the 2011-12 Part B FER is not submitted by the due date, the LEA will not be allowed to access their 2012-13 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 expenditures for all payments through September 30, 2012, that had to be obligated prior to June 30, 2012.  For step-by-step instructions on completing and submitting the FY12 Part B FER, please review the ePeGs Final Expenditure Report Training Guide FY12 located at http://dese.mo.gov/divspeced/Finance/partbentitlement.html

Remaining unexpended Part B funds from the FY12 grant may be carried over and expended in 2012-13.  However, in order for carry-over funds to appear in 2012-13, the district must amend their 2012-13 budget application once the FER is approved.  Please note that Maintenance of Effort (MOE) for 2011-12 may only include expenditures from July 1, 2011, through June 30, 2012.  Please be sure the FY12 Part B FER is accurate and accounts for all special education expenditures before it is submitted as there will be no FY12 Part B FER revisions allowed unless there is an audit/monitoring finding or an error in the ePeGs system that directly affects the FERs.
