Unformatted text preview: Financial Management Guide U.S. Department of Homeland Security Preparedness Directorate Office of Grants and Training Office of Grant Operations January 2006 Department of Homeland Security The mission of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is to lead the unified national effort to secure America; to prevent and deter terrorist attacks and protect against and respond to threats and hazards to the nation; and to ensure safe and secure borders, welcome lawful immigrants and visitors, and promote the free-flow of commerce. DHS is also dedicated to protecting the rights of American citizens and enhancing public services, such as natural disaster assistance and citizenship services, by dedicating offices to these important missions.

Henke Executive Director Office of Grants and Training Kimberly Orben Director, Office for Business Administration Office of Grants and Training Nancy Anne (Baugher) Foy Director, Office of Grant Operations Office of Grants and Training 1-866- 9ASK-OGO (866-927-5646) [email protected] Foreword Since terrorists attacked our nation on September 11, 2001, the Office of Grants and Training (G&T) and its predecessor agencies have awarded more than $8.6 billion in grant funding to build capabilities at the state and local levels to prevent, prepare for, and respond to terrorist incidents and catastrophic disasters. As stewards of these public funds, G&T and its recipient agencies share responsibility for ensuring–through sound planning and prioritizing–that those funds are well-invested, and–through sound financial processes–that those funds are well-managed. G&T’s Office of Grant Operations (OGO) developed this Financial Management Guide to provide step-by-step guidance in fulfilling your fiduciary responsibility as recipients of Federal grant funds and in ensuring that these taxpayer dollars are used for the purposes for which they are awarded. The Guide should serve as the primary reference and day-to-day management tool for G&T award recipients and subrecipients in all financial management and grant administration matters. I hope that you will find this Financial Management Guide useful and welcome your comments and suggestions. I also encourage you to contact our Office of Grant Operations whenever you have a question about your financial management operations or any of the areas covered in this Guide . OGO’s Customer Service staff may be reached at 1-866-9ASK-OGO or via e-mail at [email protected]...
