Data Collection Purpose
A report of year-to-date obligations by activity.
The LEA must report year to date obligations for the period of July 1, 2011 to December 31, 2011 from the Title III, Part A LEP Student Sub-grant program entitlement.
Obligations by the LEA may include administrative and indirect costs, and any repayment of funds. Administrative costs and indirect costs combined are capped at 2 percent of the LEA grant. Note: An LEA may use no more than 2 percent of LEP student sub-grant for administrative costs and indirect costs (Title III, Section 3115[b]). The U.S. Department of Education’s 1997 guidance, Indirect Cost Determinations, Guidance for State and Local Government Agencies (referred to as the Blue Book) states that any “statutory or regulatory limitation applies to the combined claims for indirect costs and direct administration costs.” Please visit the CDE Title III Frequently Asked Questions Web page.
According to the CSAM, “Legal obligations are commitments made by an LEA to purchase goods or services immediately or in a future period.” To determine whether a financial commitment should be reported as an obligation, please refer to 34 CFR, Part 76, Section 707. Retrieve by Citation Web page is found at CFR (Outside Source).
