Maine DOE has implemented new procedures for audit and corrective action plan extensions for school administrative units and municipal school units.
- Extensions for audit and corrective action plans will expire no less than 30 days from the date the extension request was submitted to the Department.
- Extensions will be considered up until June 30 (six months after due date); extensions will not be granted after June 30.
- All SAUs and municipal school units with overdue audits that have not submitted an extension request within the designated timeframe will be put on the hold subsidy list in July.
- After June 30 and once on the hold list, submitting the requested documents is the only way to be removed from the hold subsidy list.
Extension may be granted on a month to month basis with at least a 30-day extension period; if an additional extension is necessary, please be sure to submit a request for a new extension to the Department before the expiration date of the previous extension.
