Compliance with Laws and Regulations: A grantee is required to comply with all federal, state, and local laws and regulation in effect at any time during the course of the grant. Compliance requirements may be found in the Notification of Grant Award or the Kansas Department for Children and Families (DCF) Financial and Administrative Grants Policy Manual.

Current Rehabilitation Services (RS) Grants: Rehabilitation Services has moved towards an outcome or payment-for-performance model for services. Instead of grants, Provider Agreements (a.k.a. fee-for-service or payment-for-performance agreements) are developed with potential service providers.

Grant changes and modifications: A grant may be modified only by the written agreement of both parties with the approval of DCF. No alteration or variation of the terms of conditions of the Grant shall be valid unless made in writing and signed by the parties. Every amendment shall specify the date on which its provisions shall be effective.

For Grants that include a line item budget, grantees are permitted to rebudget some line items at their discretion. Any changes in equipment purchases, personnel and indirect costs shall be requested in writing thirty days prior to the effective date, and require written prior approval by RS Program Staff. Any budget adjustment resulting in a need for additional grant funding or an extension of the grant period shall require an amendment to the grant award prior to the change.

Effective Date: April 26, 2005
