Accounting for the Grant/Your Financial Reporting Requirements

Financial reporting is an essential reporting requirement in DSS Grant Agreements.  It provides assurance to the Department that the grant provided has been used in an efficient, effective and ethical manner and in accordance with the Grant Agreement.

  • Financial reporting must be provided for each grant provided by DSS.
  • The level of assurance required in your financial reporting may differ depending on the requirements of each activity we fund.
