The purpose of this worksheet is to support states in developing or enhancing their internal processes for monitoring implementation of their System of Payment (SOP) policies statewide. Also, this worksheet can be used to assist states in preparing for Fiscal Monitoring by the Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP). This worksheet was developed by the ECTA Center in 2017 based on information and questions in the Part C System of Payments Monitoring Protocol developed and released by OSEP in 2016 (https://osep.grads360.org/#communities/pdc/documents/12961). The “Considerations” included with each question were designed to help the state think about how their system addresses each question.
