Projects selected for funding under Section 75025 of the Safe Drinking Water & Water Quality Grants Projects Program are required to spend grant funds in accordance with approved project scope and budget contained in each Funding Agreement. Each claim is reviewed by technical staff to ensure conformity with plans and specifications. An interim site inspection visit is conducted on each project along with a final inspection. Administrative staff review claims to ensure mathematical accuracy along with conformity to budgeted amounts, any special contract conditions, and obtain engineering clearance in order to process claims for payment. Each payment request must contain a certification by the grantee that all expenses claimed are in accordance with the agreement and supporting documentation must be attached to the claim.

All projects funded under Section 75025 of the Safe Drinking Water & Water Quality Grants Projects Program receive a final inspection prior to releasing final grant funds for payment of the final claim. The purpose of the final field inspection is to ensure the project has been built according to the plans and specifications contained in the approved funding agreement, which contains the scope of work and the budget. The final payment request must contain a certification by the grantee that all expenses claimed are in accordance with the agreement and supporting documentation must be attached to the claim. All grantees must comply with all current laws and regulations that apply to the project and submit documents itemizing total project costs and any additional funding sources, if applicable. Each grant project contains an audit provision in the Funding Agreement that allows post audits of completed projects and requires the grantee to maintain and make available all accounting records and source documentation necessary to support the charges billed to CDPH.
