Fiscal Support Team
The National Center for Systemic Improvement Fiscal Support Team (NCSI FST) helps states meet IDEA and other federal fiscal requirements, consider the equity of special education funding, and appropriately allocate and align resources to improve state systems that support students with disabilities. The team assists SEAs with IDEA fiscal data analysis and monitoring, problem solving, and improving state and local processes. The objectives for this work are to: (1) provide SEAs with technical assistance that helps them support LEAs with improving outcomes for children with disabilities; and (2) collaborate across national TA centers to ensure that states can access a continuum of support on fiscal topics.
The Fiscal Support Team provides states with technical assistance regarding many topics that include but are not limited to sub-recipient monitoring and fiscal risk assessments, excess costs, equitable services/proportionate share, indirect costs, and compliance with IDEA, EDGAR, and Uniform Grant Guidance fiscal requirements.
Email fiscal questions to [email protected]. NCSI’s goal is to provide a response to your request as soon as possible or within three business days.
