Grant Administration & Accounting
Yosemite Community College District (YCCD) provides services to ensure program and financial compliance with the awarding agencies (Federal, State, & Other Agencies). These sponsored programs (grants) placed in restricted account and are subject to various terms, conditions, and regulations under the Office of Management and Budget Circulars, and the related agency regulations. As the recipient institution of various federal sponsored programs, we are accountable for ensuring that costs charged to a sponsored program are allowable, allocable, and reasonable under cost principles. These services collectively support YCCD, Modesto Junior College (MJC), and Columbia College (CC).
Below are major federal regulations that address the financial compliance and administrative guidelines related to sponsored programs.
