1. What is the General Statement of Assurance (GSA)?

It is a document that guarantees accountability to the United States and to the State of Arizona. All LEAs wishing to apply for and receive grant monies must have a current GSA on file at the Arizona Department of Education (ADE). This document is renewed yearly, and is due by May 31st. It is available on the Grants Management Enterprise homepage as a download.

Upon the LEA’s submittal of the GSA, access to the secure Grants Management processes is provided for the fiscal year. A Common Logon userID is assigned for each authorized signer. The Grants Management unit internally requests the permissions, which is then provided by the ADE Support Center. If you have any questions regarding your Common Logon account, contact the ADE support center at 602-542-7378 or toll-free 1-866-577-9636.
