Washington, DC (PRWEB) October 22, 2012
Federal Fund Management Advisor is pleased to announce its Oct. 30 webinar, “‘If It’s Not Documented, It Didn’t Happen’ — How to Make Sure Your Grant Costs Are Supported,” an informative and practical look at federal grant documentation from a recipient and subrecipient perspective.
The federal rules related to grant documentation are fairly ambiguous. They say things like costs must be “adequately documented” or that the grant accounting records must be “supported by source documentation.” But the details about how to do that are left to recipients and subrecipients to craft and, too often, for auditors to second guess. A lot of questioned costs can get turned into disallowed costs if the documentation is deemed substandard.
During this Oct. 30 webinar, attendees will learn what is actually required for the documentation of and the best practices for charges like:
- Employee salaries and wages
- Fringe benefits
- Professional consulting services
- Equipment purchases and utilization
- Materials, supplies and withdrawals from central stores
- Facility leasing
- Building depreciation, use, operation and maintenance
- Third-party in-kind contributions
- Other direct costs

The webinar will be presented by Bob Lloyd, a respected authority on policies and practices affecting the award, administration and oversight of federal grants, contracts and subawards.

Prior to starting his management consulting practice in Washington, D.C., in 1982, he served as the executive director of the Grants Management Advisory Service and held staff positions in two large federally funded organizations.
