Post assistance requirements...
This section indicates whether program reports, expenditure reports, cash reports or performance monitoring are required by the Federal funding agency, and specifies at what time intervals (monthly, annually, etc.) this must be accomplished.
DHHS, or any other authorized Federal agency, may conduct an audit to determine whether the applicant has complied with all governing laws and regulations in its application for funding. Any and all information submitted to DHHS by an applicant or participating hospital during or after the award of funds is subject to review in an audit. Eligible hospitals are subjected to the terms of the Full-Time Equivalent Assessment Process Guidance which is available electronically via CHGMEPP web site noted in Application Procedure above.
This section discusses audits required by the Federal agency.
The procedures and requirements for State and local governments and nonprofit entities are set forth in OMB Circular No. A-133.
These requirements pertain to awards made within the respective State's fiscal year - not the Federal fiscal year,
as some State and local governments may use the calendar year or other variation of time span designated as the fiscal year period,
rather than that commonly known as the Federal fiscal year (from October 1st through September 30th).
In accordance with 45 CFR Part 74, Subpart D, financial and programmatic records, supporting documents, statistical records, and all other records of a participating hospital that are required by the terms of the award or may reasonably be considered pertinent to the award, must be retained for 3 years after the end of a fiscal year. Access to these records is also governed by the provisions of 45 CFR Part 74, Subpart D.
This section indicates the record retention requirements and the type of records the Federal agency may require.
Not included are the normally imposed requirements of the General Accounting Office.
For programs falling under the purview of OMB Circular No. A-102, record retention is set forth in Attachment C.
For other programs, record retention is governed by the funding agency's requirements.
