Note: NACUBO’s Tutorial uses a HEERF Funds drawdown approach to reporting, based on November 2021 guidance from ED. However, ED guidance in 2020 indicated that an expenditure approach is acceptable for institutional funds reporting (even if funds are not drawn from G5).
Below are additional resources that ED has available to support reporting efforts.

OMB Compliance Supplement: ED Guidance from 2020 and 2021 has been codified in the OMB 2021 Compliance Supplement. Although reporting is a compliance category, we believe that auditors will only be required to test that the report was submitted in a timely manner; ED has not identified quantitative testing requirements for key line items on the institutional use of HEERF funds reports. Institutions should check with their auditors concerning major program audit requirements for HEERF.
