The Head Start Performance Standards and the Uniform Guidance (45 CFR Part 75) include regulations for acquiring and managing facilities and equipment.
- Acquire: The Performance Standards provides requirements for requesting funds for the purposes of major renovations, purchases, and construction of facilities used in the provision of Head Start and Early Head Start services. Additionally, the Uniform Guidance provides regulations for managing equipment acquired in whole or in part with federal funds.
- Managing: The Uniform Guidance provides regulations to manage facilities and equipment, records, maintenance, inventory, and disposition.
Managing Head Start Real Property, Facilities, and Equipment addresses the development of an application for funding to acquire equipment and facilities and the internal control to ensure the facilities and equipment are used solely for the authorized purposes.
Participants will engage in a series of hands on activities designed to ensure the non-Federal entity develops and submits a high-quality application, including a budget that addresses all requirements for equipment purchases and installation, renovations, and construction. Requirements such as Davis-Bacon compliance will be fully addressed and the federal requirements for protection of the federal interest.
This in-depth workshop sells out quickly, so be sure to register early. The Office of Head Start has invested millions of dollars in the areas of equipment and facilities. If you are interested in your organization’s accountability of its facilities and equipment, this training addresses your needs.
