​​​​​​​Monitoring of LEAs’ Coronavirus Associated Federal Programs

In accordance with Title 2 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Part 200 Subpart D, the Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE) is responsible for performing subrecipient monitoring of grant-funded operations to ensure accountability and compliance with requirements and achievement of performance goals. As such, PDE has contracted with Deloitte to assist in monitoring subrecipients of ESSER grants. 

Deloitte will be conducting both On-Site Monitoring (OSM) and Virtual Monitoring (VM) of subrecipients of ESSER I, ESSER II, and/or ARP ESSER grants. The goal of these activities is not to conduct an audit, but rather to conduct a review of the ESSER grant programs, related processes/procedures, and to ensure compliance with Federal grant program rules and regulations. This review can help to prepare for and respond to future audits or reviews, and provides opportunity to ask technical questions and discuss any compliance or performance-related concerns you may have. If selected for an OSM visit, the Deloitte monitoring team will travel to you to conduct their monitoring review. 

Please review the following to prepare for your upcoming monitoring. 

The Interim Revision process is required only if your LEA has significant program and / or budget changes to your approved ESSER and ARP ESSER applications.
