Sub-recipients’ Monitoring Plan

As a pass-through entity of federal awards, APU is responsible for monitoring the sub-recipient(s) to ensure proper stewardship of federal funds. APU is responsible for:

§ informing the sub-recipient of all applicable federal/state laws and regulations and all appropriate flow-down provisions from the prime agreement;

§ reviewing the sub-recipients’ audit results via the Federal Audit Clearinghouse or State Auditors;

§ reviewing any corrective actions cited by sub-recipients in response to their audit findings, where the audit findings are related to APU’s awards to the sub-recipients;

§ issuing a management decision on sub-recipient’s audit findings within six months after receipt of the audit results and ensure the sub-recipient takes appropriate and timely corrective action.
