However, the retention period referenced in 2 CFR 200.333 pertaining to individual ICDBG activities starts from the date of the submission of the final status and evaluation report as prescribed in § 1003.506(a) in which the specific activity is reported.
(11) Section 200.343, “Closeout.”
(1) All items of cost listed in 2 CFR part 200, subpart E , which require prior Federal agency approval are allowable without the prior approval of HUD to the extent that they comply with the general policies and principles stated in 2 CFR part 200, subpart E, and are otherwise eligible under subpart C of this part, except for the following:
(i) Depreciation methods for fixed assets shall not be changed without the approval of the Federal cognizant agency.
(ii) Fines, penalties, damages, and other settlements are unallowable costs to the ICDBG program.
(iii) Costs of housing (e.g., depreciation, maintenance, utilities, furnishings, rent), housing allowances and personal living expenses (goods or services for personal use), regardless of whether reported as taxable income to the employees ( 2 CFR 200.445), require HUD prior approval.
(2) No person providing consultant services in an employer-employee type of relationship shall receive more than a reasonable rate of compensation for personal services paid with ICDBG funds. In no event, however, shall such compensation exceed the equivalent of the daily rate paid for Level IV of the Executive Schedule.
