Excess cost vs excess funds
Without going into a lot of detail, I had a GMS tell me this afternoon, that we could buy something (meaning 1 item out of sevaral on the request) that went over the the allowed AFG funds, then after that was all said and done if we had excess funds on the grant we could apply excess funds towards that cost instead of out of pocket for the dept.
If anyone needs more info to clarify the sitiation, PM me, I've received a couple of phone calls and emails from vendors over things I've posted here and would rather keep this in house until we have a better answer to this question, from what I understand from the PG and elswhere the GMS isn't right about this.
question anout our gear cost
Maybe you can help me out with this question on running over on cost.
We were granted 10 set of new gear, Pants and jackets. We were funded for $900 for jackets and $800 for pants. Price we got for jackets was $1047.15 each and $732.45 each for pants. Totaling $1779.60 for each pants/jacket set. This meaning we are over by $79.60 per set. Are you saying this is ok to do and allowed in AFG. I have always been under the impression that we would have to pay the extra we were over on each set at the time they were purchased.
