Washington, DC (PRWEB) August 06, 2013
A well-designed system for generating records, retaining them, disclosing them (when appropriate) and disposing of them when they are no longer needed is an essential element of good grants management. Federal grants expert Bob Lloyd will provide a comprehensive and practical examination of these critical activities in the upcoming Aug. 15 webinar from Federal Fund Management Advisor, “Your Federal Grant Records — Creating, Retaining, Disclosing and Disposing.”
The questions to be answered include:
- Who must keep federal grant-related records?
- What records have to be kept?
- What media can be used?
- How does the federal Electronic Signature Act apply to grant records?
- Are there required formats or key data elements?
- How long must grant records be kept?
- When do the various record retention periods start?
- What impact do organization-related policies have on federal grant records?
- How does the federal Freedom of Information Act apply to documents submitted to the federal government? Or to the ones organizations retain?
- What records are protected from disclosure under the federal Privacy Act?
- What requirements apply to individuals’ personal information with a grant or subgrant?
- What procedures should be followed for records related to intellectual property created under a federal award?
- How do grant reporting requirements and recordkeeping ones interrelate?
- Who has access to the grant records? Who doesn’t?
