Program Knowledge Level: Basic

Advanced Preparation: None

It’s no secret that federal grantor agencies and pass-through entities take recipient and subrecipient reporting requirements seriously. When your reports don’t show up on time, it’s like waving a red flag to federal agencies and auditors saying, “Please pay more attention to us” or, worse yet, “Please come visit.” Even when reports are submitted timely, their content can trigger additional troublesome scrutiny.

When the Office of Management and Budget completed its grant reform initiative, it produced a set of policies that underscored the importance of grants management reporting. First, OMB reinforced the proper use of existing prime grant reporting requirements and mechanisms while emphasizing the role of the Paperwork Reduction Act. It also added some new requirements, such as those dealing with electronic formats.

Unfortunately, OMB also left the door open for grantor agencies to come up with even more requirements, and it did little to clarify what kinds of reports pass-through entities can demand from subrecipients.

To help you get your arms around grant reporting, this webinar will take a checklist approach —identifying each relevant requirement and drilling down on what has to be reported, how to do so and when. Participants will learn about:

  • Rules that apply to reporting imposed by federal agencies
  • Rules that apply to reporting imposed by pass-through entities
  • Financial reporting relying on the Standard Form 425
  • Performance reporting and attention to the Government Performance and Results Act
  • The importance of timely reporting of “extraordinary” events
  • New required disclosures related to conflict of interest and federal criminal laws
  • Subaward reporting under the Federal Funding Accountability and Transparency Act (FFATA)
  • Continued reporting obligations for real property purchased or constructed with federal funds
  • President Obama’s executive order on methods of reporting and transmission
  • Reporting at award closeout
  • The single audit reporting package
  • The requirements of the recent Digital Accountability and Transparency Act (DATA Act)
  • What reporting changes might lie ahead
