The Division of Federal Fiscal Compliance and Reporting ensures that the agency is in compliance with the following reporting requirements for recipients of federal funds.
Federal Funding Accountability and Transparency Act (FFATA)
FFATA requires the agency to collect and report specific information related to federal subawards issued to local educational agencies (LEAs). This information is then published on www.USASpending.gov.
Maintenance of Effort Reduction and Coordinated Early Intervening Services Survey
The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) requires the agency to collect and report specific information on LEAs receiving federal funds under IDEA, Part B. The Office of Special Education Programs at the US Department of Education then publishes the information in its Annual Report to Congress on the Implementation of IDEA. The data are also used to monitor IDEA programs and activities.
