Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) Funded Grants Administrative Manual
This manual provides guidance on managing a grant project funded with federal LSTA funds including how to appropriately credit the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
Quarterly Financial and Narrative Report
This report is due no later than 15 days after the close of the April—June quarter and 15 days after the close of the July—September quarter. The report may be submitted earlier, but is due no later than July 15 and October 15, 2014 for the respective quarters.
This final financial report is required for all grantees with grant funds encumbered (obligated) at September 30. The Encumbrance Report documents the liquidation of obligated grant funds during the 45 days after the end of the grant period. If all grant funds are disbursed at September 30, the Encumbrance Report is not required. The Encumbrance Report is due November 15, 2014, but may be submitted as soon as all obligated grant funds are liquidated.
A grantee may be required to request a budget amendment if the over-expenditures across all budget lines are anticipated to total more than 10% of the grant award. This is considered a significant variance from the approved budget. It is a grantee's responsibility to request a budget amendment, to align the budget and anticipated actual costs, before a significant variance occurs. The Budget Amendment Request may be submitted anytime during the grant period but no later than 60 days prior to the end of the grant period.
