How to Manage and Monitor Subrecipients
May 1, 2012 Webinar - Listen On-Demand or Get a CD!
The federal requirements for subrecipient management and monitoring show up in governmentwide grants administration and audit requirements. While the federal policymakers were wise to recognize that formulating one-size-fits-all solutions for how to discharge these responsibilities did not make sense, the details of the actual components of a “pass-through” entity’s system are left to individual organizations. As a result, you’ve probably encountered a number of opinions about whether your organization’s policies and practices are adequate — including perhaps some from the independent auditors who have performed your annual audits under OMB Circular A-133.
The On-Demand recording will be available immediately upon purchase* as a link within a PDF file of the accompanying written materials. CDs and printed materials are shipped via USPS.

So, how do you organize your oversight activities in a manner that provides reasonable assurance that subgrant funds are being spent properly, while at the same time balancing the understandable resource constraints that you face? What flexibility do the federal policies actually permit? What techniques make the most sense and promise the most effectiveness? How do you avoid being criticized for a system that’s poorly designed or for one that’s well-designed but is not being followed? And what should you expect if your organization is the subrecipient?
This webinar session will help you answer those questions and effectively respond to this key federal grants management responsibility. What you’ll learn:
- The specifics of federal requirements for subrecipient monitoring;
- How to organize the “subgrant universe;”
- What is the “smorgasbord” of available post-award monitoring techniques;
- How to assure that subrecipient responsibilities for matching or cost sharing are met;
- What content and frequency of financial and performance reporting can and should be imposed; and
- How oversight of subrecipient audits should be managed.
Prerequisites: Some knowledge of federal grant management and audit requirements is helpful
Advanced preparation: None
