Washington, DC (PRWEB) June 06, 2013
Opportunities for friction between federal grantors and prime recipients or between pass-through entities and their subrecipients are widespread. They can arise from a variety of sources — including less-than-clear grant and subgrant agreements, misguided interpretations of federal policies, and even a few ornery personalities. “How to Manage Your Grantor: Tips for Dealing With Those 'Who Have the Gold and Set the Rules,'” the upcoming June 18 webinar from Federal Fund Management Advisor, will offer a targeted look at some key federal regulations that are intended to preserve recipient and subrecipient prerogatives, and provide experienced-based advice about how to use those rules effectively to achieve the kind of program or project that the federal government intended when it made the initial grant.
Participants will learn:
- What elements of an award are negotiable;
- How to negotiate terms and conditions and avoid troublesome ones;
- Which rules permit awarding agencies to differentiate between solid and risky performers;
- What kinds of modifications can be made without prior approval, which ones do, and how to successfully obtain such approval, when needed;
- How to demonstrate grant compliance in an ongoing manner;
- How to keep awarding agencies informed about grant and subgrant-funded activities;
- How to manage a grantor agency site visit; and
- How to deliver bad news about an award.
