Office of Special Education and Rehabilitative Services

WASHINGTON, D.C. (Oct. 29, 2019) – The Office of Special Education and Rehabilitative Services released a frequently asked questions document for its formula grant recipients today.

“This document is non-binding and does not create or impose new legal requirements. The department is issuing it in this document on an ‘interim’ basis to provide grantees with immediate information to assist them in meeting their obligations under Uniform Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles, and Audit Requirements for Federal Awards,” said Mark Schultz, who has been delegated the authority to perform the functions and duties of the Assistant Secretary for OSERS. “We intend to publish this further and invite public comments.”

The FAQ document details prior approval flexibilities for two direct cost categories – participant support costs and equipment – for state formula grants administered by the Office of Special Education Programs and the Rehabilitation Services Administration both within OSERS, according to Schultz.
