ESSER/GEER Extra, Volume 74

This week's ESSER/GEER Extra focuses on debarment and suspension checks, contract terms and conditions, EANS reporting, and the annual Pennsylvania Association of Federal Program Coordinators Conference. All editions of ESSER/GEER Extra are archived on PDE's website.  

Debarment and Suspension Checks
Under federal Uniform Guidance, a school entity may not subcontract with or award subgrants to any person or company who is debarred or suspended. See 2 CFR Part 200, Appendix II.  To search for suspensions and debarments, also known as exclusions, search on the SAM.gov exclusions web page. The SAM.gov exclusions web page includes a number of helpful resources including information on how to understand and download exclusion extracts and a Frequently Asked Questions document.  

Contract Terms and Conditions Reminder
All contracts made by an entity under a federal award must contain contract terms and conditions outlined in the Uniform Guidance.  For more information see 2 CFR Part 200 Appendix II.  PDE advises school entities to have all contracts reviewed by their solicitor to ensure compliance with federal requirements.

EANS Reporting
PDE thanks the IUs that have already submitted EANs reporting.  Each school entity that received EANS funds must submit a report via PIMS to PDE no later than April 26, 2023.
