(A) All recipients of awards under this chapter shall comply with the procurement and reporting requirements established by ODA. Except as otherwise provided in paragraph (B) of this rule, ODA shall distribute grant awards on a reimbursement basis only.
(B) All recipients are required to complete their projects before the thirtieth day of June of the fiscal year for which the funds were awarded. Recipients who cannot reasonably complete their projects before the thirtieth day of June of the fiscal year for which the funds were awarded may, before the close of fiscal year, apply to ODA for a lump-sum payment of all unearned grant funds remaining after the first day of May of the fiscal year for which funding was awarded. ODA may approve the payment request if the recipient can provide evidence, deemed sufficient in the eyes of ODA, that it is more likely than not that the recipient will not complete the project before the end of the six-month period immediately following the end of the fiscal year.
(C) Each grant recipient shall notify its AAA immediately upon instituting any change that would affect the grantee's compliance with the eligibility criteria established by ODA under rule 173-11-02 of the Administrative Code, or that would negatively impact upon any of the representations made in the recipient's approved grant application.
(D) Each grant applicant shall allow ODA or its representative(s) access to, and an opportunity to review, all records related to any project funded in whole or in part with senior center program funds.
(E) If, at any time, the AAA or ODA determine that a grantee is not in compliance with one or more of the provisions of the request for proposals or the grant agreement, ODA may terminate, reduce, or suspend the grant.
