Monitor Cost Share Contributions - ADS 303.3.10.4, Meeting Cost Sharing Requirements

ADS 303.3.10.4, Meeting Cost Sharing Requirements, states that a technical representative should monitor the recipient's financial reports to ensure that contributions are being met and should elevate any issues to the agreement officer for resolution.

Cost share contributions are the resources a recipient contributes to the total cost of an agreement, which may include in-kind contributions, such as volunteer time, valuation of donated supplies, equipment, and other property. Furthermore, guidance authorizes an agreement officer to reduce the amount of the agreement or request recipients to refund the difference.

General Recommendations

  • Determine if appropriate cost share contributions have been made and document a plan to recover any outstanding contributions.
