Fiscal Declaration - Consortium Approved

Consortium Name
14 Desert Regional Consortium
Funding Channel
Direct Funded
The Desert Regional Consortium allocations are distributed in a manner determined by the Desert Regional Consortium on a year to year basis in a regularly scheduled public meeting. Before the distribution of funds, the consortium’s governance group will approve an expenditure plan and budget that is aligned with the three-year action plan. Members use of funds on a yearly basis are entered in the yearly CFAD and are governed by need, DRC Governance Plan, compliance with AB104 guidelines, and the Allowable Uses Guide. All decisions of the Desert Regional Consortium are final. The DRC has elected to have Direct Funding in order to have a funds flow directly to the member districts based upon the approved distribution schedule. In addition, all DRC members use Galaxy software to maintain all income and expenditures. Galaxy software is maintained by Riverside County Office of Education for all school districts/colleges and is audited annually. The fiscal information both Summary as well as Detailed, is used to enter data from all members for reports and justifications as required by the Chancellor’s Office/CDE via NOVA at the appointed reporting periods. The fiscal information is gathered by Members and uploaded via the CAEP NOVA system. The Project Manager then certifies the budget and enters it via NOVA after being certified by a certifying official from each member agency prior to final submission.
The DRC approved by unanimous vote the amount of $110,561.00 (COLA amount) to be budgeted for DRC Committee ongoing program management and for consortium-level activities. The DRC Committee budget will reside with Coachella Valley Unified School District for payment and distribution of funds. This is not an additional CVUSD member allocation.
