Not everyone in your federally funded organization needs to be an expert on the detailed grants management policies in the hefty document issued by the U.S. Office of Management and Budget — sometimes called the “Super Circular” or “uniform guidance.” But because so many people with different job responsibilities have a role to play in making sure that federal awards are performed and administered properly, there are some key aspects of these policies that every staff member needs to understand and follow.
This webinar is designed to deliver a baseline level of awareness of the current policies. Presented in laymen’s terms, the session will highlight policies that have changed as a result of the long process of consolidating and overhauling a host of separate and confusing sources. Even your veteran program and administrative employees will benefit from this solid overview.
In this webinar, participants will learn about:
- Required documentation for personnel expenses (time and effort reporting).
- Key steps to take in purchasing goods and services with federal grant funds.
- How to “partner” with subrecipients and then monitor them.
- Rules for taking care of equipment and supplies acquired under a federal award
- Why the question “Can we charge this to our grant?” is still often answered, “it depends.”
- The long list of required grant reports and the consequences for doing them late or wrong.
- What auditors will be looking for and how to send them away satisfied.
- How effective grants management is now guaranteed to affect your future funding.
The biggest benefit of the session is that everyone with a role to play can hear the same thing at the same time, presented by an objective “outsider.” The “Super Circular” requirements will be carefully cited, allowing participants later to retrace their steps and reinforce their understanding.
Join Bob Lloyd, principal of Federal Fund Management Advisor™, for what will be a cost-effective and “team-building” briefing.
