Use of Federal Funds

No federal appropriated funds have been paid or will be paid by or on behalf of Northwestern Michigan College to any person for influencing or attempting to influence an officer or employee of any agency, a Member of Congress, an officer or employee of Congress, or an employee of a Member of Congress in connection with the making of any federal grant; the entering into of any cooperative agreement; or the extension, continuation, renewal, or modification of any federal grant or cooperative agreement.  If any funds other than federal appropriated funds have been or will be paid to any person for influencing or attempting to influence an officer or employee of any agency, a Member of Congress, an officer or employee of Congress, or an employee of a Member of Congress in connection with a federal grant or cooperative agreement, NMC shall complete and submit Standard Form LLL, “Disclosure Form to Report Lobbying,” in accordance with its instructions.  The language of this certification shall be included in the award documents for all sub-awards at all tiers (including sub-grants, contract under grants and cooperative agreement, and subcontracts), and all sub-recipients are required to certify and disclose accordingly.

Federal funds received under the Carl Perkins Vocational and Applied Technology Education Act will be so used as to supplement, and to the extent practicable, increase the amount of state and local funds that would in the absence of such federal funds be made available for the use specified in the Act, and in no case supplant such state or local funds.


If any provisions(s) of this policy or set of bylaws conflicts with laws applicable to Northwestern Michigan College, including the Community College Act of 1966, the Freedom of Information Act, or the Open Meetings Act, as each may be amended from time to time, such laws shall control and supersede such provisions(s).
