Excessive IDEA-B Carryover Defined by TEA as 50% or more

Excess Carryover As Risk Indicator

Section 200.205 of Title 2 of the Code of Federal Regulations requires the US Department of Education to evaluate the risks posed by applicants before they can receive Federal awards. As an applicant, TEA must demonstrate a satisfactory record of managing federal grants in order to be eligible to receive Federal awards. One of the risks identified in 200.205(c)(3) concerns the potential for excess carryover.

Excess carryover can indicate poor planning, poor program implementation, poor fiscal management, or poor performance outcomes of federal grants.

TEA considers the following carryover amounts excessive:
•50 percent or more, for Individuals with Disabilities Education Act, Part B (IDEA-B) formula grant funds
•25 percent or more, for grants authorized under the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 (NCLB) and other IDEA grant funds
