A note on the Annual Plan Tables: 

Some regions have asked if these tables require auditable expenses.  They do not. For the tables in Section 3, the best estimate is required, not actual expenses.  Consortia are only asked to report actual expenses in the online system Expense & Progress report for Consortium reporting by object code - which is auditable.  

Reports of Expenditures by Program Area and Objective should include indirect/administration fees charged and/or anticipated. In general, Member agencies whose districts have elected to levy indirect fees against AEBG allocations should spread these costs proportionally across Program Areas and Objectives, as appropriate. Consortium administration costs (subject to the 5% cap) may be reflected in a number of different ways. It is the responsibility of each Consortium to ensure the numbers submitted are an accurate and equitable reflection of the costs to administer AEBG programs and services for both Members and the Consortium as a whole. 

For more answers to frequently asked questions related to the Annual Plan, see the Webinar Chat Q & A section titled Annual Planning (CLICK HERE).
