Net Cash Resources in Excess of 3 months average expenditures
One issue on School Nutrition Side:
Not being allowed to budget and expend the excess balance plan.
A cost may not be assigned to a Federal award as a direct costs if that same cost, incurred for the same purpose, in similar circumstances, has been allocated to other Federal awards as an indirect cost.
A school district requires its custodians to record the distribution of their work hours on time cards that capture only two categories:
Kitchen and Cafeteria and
“Kitchen” is billed to food service as direct
“Other” is treated as an indirect cost, no portion allocated to food service.
Inconsistent – only SNP is charged directly.
Indirect Cost Guidance p. 18
Indirect Cost Guidance

FNS Instruction 782-5
