Financial Information
Account Identification
(Cooperative Agreements) FY 14 $76,835,243; FY 15 est $83,434,664; and FY 16 est $79,987,800. (Project Grants) FY 14 $10,565,413; FY 15 est $10,716,420; and FY 16 est $12,016,420 - IMPACII is the official grant-making system for the agency and is the source of data used to support Grants Funding Profiles (Notice of Grant Awards). This data is balanced against the financial grants module in UFMS. While we did balance to IMPAC II the issue stems from the use of the grant closing transaction code (059) that was manually processed in the financial system (UFMS), but not processed in IMPACII – the grants data source. IMPAC II does not use the close-out module of the system and we did not include the 059 grant closeout transactions in the award amounts for the FY 2014 State Funding Profiles. Instead the amounts appeared at full value. Typically, grant closing entries do not occur using current year funds.

Grantees have been notified of the adjustment and the transactions are closed in the Payment Management System (PMS). This ensures no grantee financial adjustments are necessary. But due to the manual transactions made, the amounts reported to TAGGS were overstated for FY 2014.

This issue appears to have only impacted NCIPC and only CAN 939ZSFL for rape prevention awards under UFMS document number series VCE0022* in BFY 2014. The adjustment reduced total obligations by $1,786,105.52 for NCIPC.
