Grant Administration Manual for Title III Coordinators.
Mathis, Emily Duncan; Ashmore, Frances W.
Guidelines for coordinators of programs under Title III of the Higher Education Act of 1965 are presented, based on a national survey of Title III program coordinators. The responsibilities of the coordinator and information on administering the Strengthening Developing Institutions Program (SDIP) grant are covered. The program can either be a special project administered separately from existing institutional programs or can be integrated into the established structure and operation of the college. Whether the role of the coordinator is that of a line officer or a staff officer, some common responsibilities can be identified. The coordinator serves as the link between the college and the Department of Education, between the college and other SDIP institutions, between related units on the campus and the president, and among the activity administrators. In addition to serving as advisor to the college president, the coordinator serves as a grant manager in establishing an orderly and efficient office, monitoring the budget, assisting agency and cooperative arrangements, and ensuring that program evaluation is conducted competently and that reporting requirements are met. The plan of action for implementing the grant covers the following: office space; staff; housekeeping; fiscal accounting; cooperative arrangements, assisting agencies, and consultants; policies and procedures manual; monitoring and evaluation; unallowable costs; site visits; fiscal audit; and close-out procedures. Appended are a glossary, information on the history of Title III, and references for the program. (SW)
