The Rural, Insular, and Native Achievement Program (RINAP), within the Office of Elementary and Secondary Education (OESE), part of the U.S. Department of Education (Department), seeks emergency approval from OMB for its progress update protocol for the Outlying Areas and the Republic of Palau. RINAP administers Section 1121 of Title I, Part A of the ESEA; Title II of Public Law 108-118 (Supplemental Education Grant (SEG)), CARES Act – Outlying Areas; Title III of CRRSA – Outlying Areas, Sections 2005 and 11006(2-3) of the ARP; Title V, Part B of the ESEA (Rural Education Achievement Program), Title VI, Part B of the ESEA (Native Hawaiian Education); and Title VI, Part C of the ESEA (Alaska Native Education). Periodic progress updates, phone, virtual, or in-person conversations during a fiscal year with authorized representatives and project directors help ensure grantees are making progress toward meeting program goals and objectives. The information shared with RINAP helps inform the selection and delivery of technical assistance to grantees and aligns structures, processes, and routines so RINAP can monitor the connection between grant administration and intended outcomes.
If this collection is not allowed to proceed, ED will not be able to fulfill its oversight responsibilities under 2 CFR 200.207 and 2 CFR 3474.10. Three of the four Outlying Areas have been designated for high-risk status for over ten years resulting in ED’s need to more routinely monitor grantee progress and program implementation. The Risk Management Services Division of the Office of Grants Administration has determined that all ED grants awarded to the SEA in each Outlying Area are subject to Departmental Specific Conditions applicable to that Outlying Area. In addition, two Outlying Areas are each required to have a third-party fiduciary agent to manage ED funds. Given that the funds have already been awarded to the Outlying Areas, the need for immediate and frequent monitoring and technical assistance is critical to ensure that the funds are used in accordance with grant award assurances and conditions.
