Failure to Remit Funds Owed

If you fail to return any funds owed to OJP, OCFO will refer the debt to the U.S. Department of the Treasury for collection, as provided by Federal laws.

  • Treasury may add fees, fines, and penalties to the original amount of the debt owed to the Federal agency.
  • Failure to return any funds due to OJP may result in a high-risk designation for future awards, withholding or freezing of funds, or special conditions on all other awards to your organization. It may also impact future financial integrity reviews, which in turn will affect future grant awards.
