Award Management Tutorial

After-the-Award Requirements

<< Previous PagePage 4 of 4Frequently Asked Questions >> 


Recipient - continued

Following closeout, the recipient remains obligated to return funds due as a result of later refunds, corrections, or other transactions, and the Federal government may recover amounts based on the results of an audit covering any part of the period of support.

HRSA may administratively recover funds paid to a recipient in excess of the amount to which the recipient is finally determined to be entitled under the terms and conditions of the award, including misspent funds or unallowable costs incurred. If the recipient does not pay back the funds in accordance with the demand by HRSA, which specifies the period of time for repayment, HRSA may collect the debt by:

  • making an administrative offset against payments that would be due under other awards,
  • withholding advance payments that would otherwise be due, or
  • taking any other action permitted by statute.
