Are districts required to upload a completed "Year 1 External Provider Information" form to the proposal if they do not yet have contracts with external providers in place?

An External Provider Information Form must be uploaded to the proposal only in cases where a district has already selected an external provider and are working on a contract to implement in Year 1. See related FAQ at

However, in the proposal, all districts must assure that any future contracts with external providers, funded through SIG4, will be submitted and approved as a project amendment or during the annual renewal process (see Section II.B.5.b.), and that the district will disclose through the quarterly deliverable process any significant events or changes (such as new or terminated contracts with external providers) that will impact implementation of the SIG4 plan throughout the project period (see Section II.B.8.a.).
