Review of Grantee Drawdowns

This resource explains why grantee drawdowns are conducted. Grantees will find this information useful when their drawdowns are compared to their SF 269 by the Payment Management System.


In some instances a review of grantee drawdowns from PMS in conjunction with the review of the SF 269 [PDF, 136 KB] may be required. The most common causes for this additional review are:

  • When a grantee requests carryover funds;
  • When an interim SF 269 reveals a significant lack of funds expended or an exorbitant amount of funds expended (this can indicate either a lack of progress in completing project objectives or possible mismanagement of funds awarded);
  • During the grant closeout process, especially if the closeout was not conducted at the same time as the receipt of the final SF 269.
