Two Federal Grant Experts to Offer Recipients, Subrecipients Advice on Fixed-Amount and Performance-Based Grants Under OMB’s New Grant Reform Package

Share Article

In a Feb. 18 webinar, two seasoned federal fund practitioners will map out how recipients and subrecipients can prepare for and implement fixed-amount awards and performance-based grants.

In an effort to concentrate more on performance and results than on financial inputs, OMB is emphasizing in its new guidance that federal agencies and pass-through entities can use fixed-amount awards and performance-based grants. The Feb. 18 Federal Fund Management Advisor webinar, “The Brave New World of Fixed Obligation and Performance-Based Grants,” will help recipients and subrecipients prepare for and implement these awards.

Participants will hear from Bob Lloyd, principal of Federal Fund Management Advisor, and Jonathan Breul, former senior advisor at the U.S. Office of Management and Budget, about:

  • Which kinds of substantive programs lend themselves to fixed-amount awards?
  • How is pre-award review likely to differ from the traditional cost analysis of grant budgets?
  • What standard award terms and conditions will be missing from grant agreements? Which ones will stay?
  • How can awards-based fixed unit amounts be crafted?
  • How will performance metrics be established and measured?
  • How will federal cash flow to keep grantee and subgrantee operations going?
  • What kind of monitoring and performance reporting will be expected?
  • What is there to audit and how?
