Learn How to Comply With Human Resource Requirements Under Federal Grants

In many federal grant program budgets, the line items related to the people who will perform the work make up the bulk of expenditures. So, it’s not surprising that there are a host of federal policies related to how those grant-funded people are hired, relocated, compensated, trained and even let go. These policies are often distinct from federal requirements that apply because of an organization’s corporate status or its general role as an employer.

Sorting through — and following — the myriad policies require a careful, cooperative effort within a recipient or subrecipient organization. The people who normally handle most federal grant management tasks need to work closely with those involved in personnel administration, procurement and legal services to make sure that the grant-related rules affecting human resources are known, followed and effectively blended with other personnel-related policies. To do otherwise is to risk the kind of compliance headaches that can only be caused by multiple federal grantors and regulatory agencies.

This webinar can help you foster the kind of cross-operations collaboration that is needed in this critical management area. Participants will get clear guidance about what federal grant rules apply to their human resource management and how their organization should respond with policies, procedures and practices in these topics:

  • Employee compensation
    • Salaries, wages and fringe benefits
    • Documentation of time and effort
  • Employee health, morale and welfare
  • Housing and personal living expenses
  • Memberships and professional activities
  • Recruitment
  • Relocation
  • Training
  • Travel
  • Severance
  • Engagement of independent contractors

Level: Basic
Prerequisites: Some knowledge of federal grants management is helpful but not necessary
Advanced preparation: None
