Role and Responsibilities Matrix and Accountability System Documents
The School District of Philadelphia is committed to monitoring the programmatic and fiscal aspects of District grants to ensure effective and appropriate implementation. To this end, the District will use a standardized approach to assess personnel performance from which excellence and best practice can be recognized, and additional support and corrective action interventions can be provided. The three key documents that constitute the Accountability system are:
- Effective Grants Management – Core Competencies and SDP Best Practices. This document provides and overall guide to grant management in the District. It provides detailed descriptions of eight key areas of grant management practice, and provides specific examples of how to perform at a high level in each area. All the examples are drawn from actual District staffers currently managing grants, and the document includes the office names that can be contacted to provide further advice and assistance.
- Responsibility Matrix which provides a summary of grant management roles and responsibilities from grant inception to closeout by policy number, and level of responsibility by person or office. The matrix should be used as a guide to specific policies and procedures where the detailed responsibilities are provided.
- SDP Roles and Responsibilities Matrix – Accountability Monitoring Tool. Used to record best practice performance and instances of non-compliance for supports and interventions for specific time periods. See GP2400 for additional details.
