Examination into Grants to National Reading Center Foundation.
Comptroller General of the U.S., Washington, DC.
Reported is a review by the U. S. General Accounting Office of procedures and requirements related to grants totaling $2.9 million to the National Reading Center Foundation by the Office of Education (OE), Department of Health, Education, and Welfare. Costs totaling $305,300 incurred during the initial grant period were deemed unallowable. Problems related to unallowable costs and to conflicts over roles and responsibilities of contracting agencies could have been minimized by pre-grant outlining by OE of activities and objectives of the Right to Read effort. Early OE delineation of program authority and grantee responsibility would have provide for a more harmonious and effective OE-Foundation relationship. The oral agreement between OE and the Foundation to implement a 10-year plan for the Right to Read program should be committed to writing. (Author/RD)
