21st CCLC for Virginia

I need information about required reports or audits of an existing grant at the school.
Outline the following:

•What consequences are imposed by the granting agency if reports are late or inaccurate?
•How is the information to be presented in the report or audit gathered and tracked? What systems are in place at the school to have this information available when needed?
•What staff members, other than the preparer of the report, are involved in providing information and data? How are these people made aware of the reporting or auditing requirements? How are they involved in its preparation?
•Who authorizes the final submission?
•What legal and ethical obligations do you face in managing the allocation of these funds?

The schools here are closed for winter break and I am not able to interview school principal, grants manager, or internship site supervisor. Would you please help me? I need to write 1,000- to 1,250-word overview of the experience and your analysis based on these questions.
