Negotiators sifted through a packed agenda during the second to last day of the final session of the Institutional and Programmatic Eligibility negotiated rulemaking committee, as the group must take consensus votes on all seven issue papers before the end of the week. Picking up with the change of ownershibrandp issue paper that they began reviewing on Wednesday, the committee heard from the Department of Education (ED) about changes it made last night to its definition of nonprofit institutions in consideration of negotiator recommendations yesterday.
This week on "Off the Cuff," Justin is joined by NASFAA Senior Policy Analyst Jill Desjean and NASFAA U Instructor David Tolman to discuss some significant updates to HEERF reporting, with the Department of Education recently making changes to the Quarterly Budget and Expenditures Report, as well as changes to the clock hour-to-credit hour conversion formula related to distance learning final rules. Justin then brings in Hugh to recap some of the latest news concerning the ongoing negotiated rulemaking committee, enactment of the fiscal year 2022 spending bill, and coverage of the student loan moratorium.
