The Administrative Review

ADE must conduct Administrative Reviews of all sponsors of the NSLP and/or SBP at least once each three-year review cycle. The objectives of the Administrative Review (AR) are to:

  • Determine whether program requirements are met
  • Provide technical assistance
  • Secure any needed corrective action
  • Assess fiscal action and, when applicable, recover improperly paid funds.

Sponsors receiving an AR will be notified the summer prior to the school year the AR will be conducted. A list of sponsors scheduled to receive an AR in the current school year can also be found here:
