Welcome to Grants Monitoring Branch
Required by federal mandate, the Cal OES Grants Monitoring Branch assesses grant programs to verify that expenditures submitted for reimbursement are allowable, reasonable, benefit the grant, and have been appropriately charged to the correct cost category. We also verify adequate policies, processes, and systems are in place to manage Cal OES awards effectively.
Cal OES' monitoring process gauges compliance with federal and state policies and regulations, and includes both office-based and on-site activities. Monitoring focuses on providing technical assistance and guidance to validate or improve administrative efficiencies in managing award funds. If a misunderstanding of, or non-compliance with, federal or state regulations is discovered, assisting with a plan for corrective action to comply with the terms and conditions of the grant is another function of the monitoring process.
