error certification
ERROR CERTIFICATION
  • AUDITORS USE NACUBO’S “A GUIDE TO MANAGING FEDERAL GRANTS”
  • THE NACUBO PUBLICATION REFERS TO TWO FEDERAL GUIDELINES ON COST TRANSFERS: OMB CIRCULAR A-21 AND THE PHS GRANTS POLICY STATEMENT
error certification21
ERROR CERTIFICATION
  • "Transfers of costs to PHS grants by grantees, subgrantees, and contractors that represent corrections of clerical or bookkeeping errors must be made promptly after the error is discovered. The transfers must be supported by documentation that contains a full explanation of how the error occurred and a certification of the correctness of the new charge by a responsible financial or administrative official of the recipient organization. An explanation which merely states that the transfer was made 'to correct error' or 'to transfer to correct project' is not sufficient. It should be noted that frequent errors in the recording of costs may indicate the need for improvements in the grantee's accounting system and/or internal controls. Therefore, where such errors occur, grantees are encouraged and may be required to evaluate the need for improvements in these areas and to make what improvements are deemed necessary."PHS Grants Policy Statement 7-18
error certification22
ERROR CERTIFICATION
  • "Any costs allocable to a particular sponsored agreement under the standards provided in this Circular may not be shifted to other sponsored agreements in order to meet deficiencies caused by overruns or other fund considerations, to avoid restrictions imposed by law or by terms of the sponsored agreement, or for other reasons of convenience."OMB Circular A-21, C.4.b
error certification23
ERROR CERTIFICATION
  • EXPENSE TRANSFERS ONTO FEDEDERAL AND SUB FEDERAL ACCOUNTS THAT ARE GREATER THAN 30 DAYS PAST THE RUN DATE
  • MUST BE FILLED OUT COMPLETELY
  • QUESTION NUMBER TWO IS THE REASON MOST CERTS ARE RETURNED TO THE DEPT
  • REFER TO HANDOUTS
