Washington, DC (PRWEB) September 16, 2013
The federal laws that authorize grant programs are often loaded with incentives and disincentives, commonly related to expenditures in grant and subgrant agreements. How these guidelines work, however, is not always clear in the governing federal policies. During the upcoming Sept. 26 webinar from Federal Fund Management Advisor, “Have You Met Your Match? — Troubleshooting the Nonfederal Part of Your Grant,” federal grants expert Bob Lloyd will discuss the current compliance challenges of requirements for matching, cost sharing and similar limitations in federal grants and how to successfully overcome them.
Participants of this webinar will learn:
- What is the difference between matching and cost sharing?
- What is really a “cash match” and what’s an “in-kind contribution”?
- How can third-party in-kind contributions be effectively documented?
- Are there any incentives to “overmatch”?
- How does “leveraging” get reported and verified?
- How does “maintenance of effort” get monitored?
- What’s the impact of percentage cost limitations?
- What are the real audit vulnerabilities?
- Where are the consequences of violating the requirements?
