Webinar Details

Subject: Grants Management

Hear a special federal grant policy reboot for HR managers

What most federal grants and subgrants pay for more than anything else is people — “human” resources. Therefore, the intersection between standard personnel administration practice and federal grant requirements is a critical one for those managing the human resources policies for federally funded organizations.

At a minimum, HR professionals need a working knowledge of the federal requirements for allowable expenses affecting employees and independent contractors. Also, as the likely “knowledge managers” for their organizations, HR professionals know who else on staff needs to be familiar with the federal grant rules so your organization can avoid costly missteps.

Now is a good time for a refresher course. That’s because we’re in the early stages of implementation of a reformed and repackaged set of grants management policies crafted by the U.S. Office of Management and Budget. The revised rules apply uniformly to all governmental units, higher education institutions and nonprofit organizations that receive grants directly from the federal government and indirectly through other organizations.

This webinar will cull through the rules and explain them from the unique perspective of human resource management. It’ll cover requirements for:

  • Worker classification
  • Salaries and wages
  • Time and effort reporting
  • Escalation (cost of living adjustments, promotions)
  • Incentive pay
  • Severance
  • Compensated absences (paid time off)
  • Pension plan costs
  • Employee insurance
  • Post-retirement health benefits
  • Training and education
  • Travel
  • Dependent care costs
  • Relocation expenses
  • Independent contractor services

Level: Basic
Prerequisites: Some knowledge of federal grant management and audit requirements is helpful
Advanced preparation: None

Hand-out Materials

Attendees will receive presentation slides as well as access to background documents.
