​​​​​​​​​​The information in this section is to support sub-recipients in meeting the financial requirements of the GSRP program. This includes timelines, allocations, and forms for budgeting, reporting expenditures, and requesting reimbursement.


In the Spring a list of financial report timelines is updated for the following school year. This resource guides programs to ensure timely report submission which allows Oakland Schools to submit reports to MDE within grant required timelines.

Fall 2017 Allocation and Budget Template


Final Expenditure Reports (FERs)


Carryover (CO) Forms

  • Carryover budgets are for programs that did not spend all of their 2016-2017 GSRP allocation by June 30, 2017. The funding has to be spent by June 30, 2018, or returned to the state. For this reason, we recommend programs spend in areas they know they will have expenses, like teacher and associate teacher salaries.
  • Budgets are due to Oakland Schools on September 8, 2017.

Transportation Allocation and Budget Template

Transportation funds for transporting children between home and the GSRP site. Allocations are made based on requests from 17-18 sub-recipients that submitted an estimate of expenses by August 30, 2017. Transportation funding for 17-18 must be spent by September 30, 2018 and cannot be carried over past that date. Transportation budgets are due to Oakland Schools on September 29, 2017.


Fair Allocation of Costs Form

Fair Allocation of Costs Form for sub-recipients allocating expenses in any 260 function codes in any GSRP budget.

Capital Outlay Request Form

The Capital Outlay Request Form must be complete and submitted to Oakland Schools for review. Capital Outlay refers to expenditures for the acquisition of fixed assets or additions to fixed assets. For GSRP, capital outlay refers to costs in excess of $5,000 for developmentally appropriate equipment (per unit/project), building purchase and renovation cost, if needed, to meet Public Act 116 of 1973, as amended, licensing approval or to provide sufficient classroom space.  A capital outlay request must be submitted by the ISD.  Prior approval by MDE is required before the funding for the item is obligated. Sub-recipients will not be reimbursed for Capital Outlay costs that have not had prior approval from MDE.
