Annual Audit Status Certification (AASC)
Organizations that participate in Child Care and Development, Nutrition, Adult Education, and No Child Left Behind programs administered by the California Department of Education (CDE) must annually report to the CDE the total amount of federal and state funds expended during the past fiscal year. The AASC form (DOC), while streamlining this process, does not replace the federal and state requirements to submit an annual audit report to the Federal Clearinghouse and to the CDE Audits and Investigations Division.
The AASC form must be completed according to the AASC form instructions and returned to the CDE Audits and Investigations Division by the deadline noted at the top of the form. To ensure the accuracy of reported information, the person completing the AASC form should have knowledge of all your organization’s financial contracts and programs. If the information requested on the AASC form does not apply to your organization for reasons such as cancellation, termination, or voluntary discontinuation of CDE’s programs, please sign, date, and return the form with a notation stating the reason of non-applicability.
Submit your organization’s completed and signed AASC form to:
Robert Hoyer, Staff Services Analyst
California Department of Education
Audits and Investigations Division
1430 N Street, Suite 5319
Sacramento, CA 95814
Failure to timely submit the AASC form to the CDE Audits and Investigations Division may jeopardize your continued participation in all programs administered by the CDE.
If you need assistance with the AASC form, please contact Robert Hoyer, Staff Services Analyst, at 916-445-6776.
