Article4CFAD Now Open
With the release of the preliminary allocations, the 2017-18 Consortium Fiscal Administration Declaration (CFAD) is opened. The CFAD is the process whereby the AEBG consortia members agree upon whether to designate a fiscal administrator or choose direct funding.  Additionally, this is the process for members to agree upon their allocations for the 2017-18 fiscal year and make any adjustments from prior years.  
Consortia primary contacts can access the CFAD through the AEBG Consortia Portal. Access to the AEBG Portal is limited to the consortium primary contact or their designated representative.
If you are a primary contact or designated representative and have never accessed the Web Portal, click the link to the Web Portal below and click on the "Sign Up" link. If you forgot your password for the portal, navigate to the portal and click on "(forgot?)" next to "Password."  For more details regarding access to and navigation of the Portal, see the link for the Web Portal User Guide included below. 
Please note that member representatives will be required to certify the CFAD with their signature either on paper or digitally.  Primary Contacts should refer to the CFAD form or the guidance for instructions on how to submit these signatures.
