Compliance Agreement
Document Number: E7-20847
Type: Notice
Date: 2007-10-23
Agency: Department of Education
This notice is being published in the Federal Register consistent with sections 457(b)(2) and (d) of the General Education Provisions Act (GEPA). Section 457 of GEPA authorizes the U.S. Department of Education (the Department) to enter into a compliance agreement with a recipient that is failing to comply substantially with Federal program requirements and for whom the Department determines that full compliance is not feasible until a future date. Section 457(b)(2) requires the Department to publish written findings leading to a compliance agreement, with a copy of the compliance agreement, in the Federal Register. If a recipient fails to comply with the terms and conditions of a compliance agreement, the Secretary may take any action authorized by law with respect to the recipient. On September 23, 2002, the Department entered into a compliance agreement (Agreement) with the U.S. Virgin Islands (VI) because the Department determined from all available information that the VI would not be able to come into full compliance with applicable Federal regulations for the administration of Department programs until a future date. Notwithstanding the Agreement, and intensive and frequent technical assistance by the Department, when the term of the Agreement ended on September 23, 2005, the VI was substantially in non-compliance with Federal requirements. Therefore, the Department has imposed special conditions and has taken a number of other important measures in its continuing effort to bring the VI into full compliance with all Federal requirements pertaining to the administration of Department programs. Most notably, the special conditions currently in effect require the VI to procure, and maintain, the services of a third-party fiduciary agent to perform the financial management duties required under Federal regulations for all Department grants, which the VI accomplished beginning in August 2006.

If a recipient fails to comply with the terms and conditions of a compliance agreement, the Secretary may take any action authorized by law with respect to the recipient. On October 25, 2004, the Department entered into a compliance agreement (Agreement) with the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico (Puerto Rico) and the Puerto Rico Department of Education (PRDE) because PRDE was failing to comply substantially with numerous Federal requirements, and it was clear to the Department from all available information that PRDE would not be able to come into full compliance with applicable Federal requirements for the administration of Department programs until a future date. The Agreement applied to all grant funds awarded to Puerto Rico and PRDE by the Department's Offices of Special Education and Rehabilitative Services; Elementary and Secondary Education; English Language Acquisition, Language Enhancement and Academic Achievement for Limited English Proficient Students; Vocational and Adult Education; Innovation and Improvement; and Postsecondary Education. Prior to, and during the term of, the Agreement, the Department and PRDE have been working collaboratively to resolve a backlog of PRDE audits dating back to 1994 and, through jointly developed corrective action plans, to address a range of longstanding problems in PRDE's administration of Federal grants in the areas of grants management, payroll, financial management, property management, and procurement.
