The purpose of this flash report is to share with the U.S. Department of Education (Department) observations made by the Office of Inspector General (OIG) concerning grantees and subgrantees inconsistently reporting audit data on Department subprograms, or unique components of a program, to the Federal Audit Clearinghouse (FAC), the designated repository of single audit data. We found that grantees and subgrantees are not consistently reporting expenditures of Education Stabilization Fund (ESF) subprogram awards in the FAC. Specifically, when entering Federal award information into the Data Collection Form, grantees and subgrantees either (1) did not identify which ESF subprogram their expenditures were awarded under or (2) used widespread variations of subprogram identifying information to identify which subprogram their expenditures were awarded under.
