Washington, DC (PRWEB) April 28, 2014

Everyone in an organization that touches a federal grant or subgrant has a “need to know” about the new grant landscape. That includes governing body members and executive management, as well as staff members involved with finance, administration and program management. During “Federal Grants Reform — The ‘High Altitude’ View,” the first installment in a four-part series of webinars on implementing OMB’s federal grants reform, Federal Fund Management Advisor will provide an overview of the key elements of the new federal policies — such as standards of conduct, application procedures, required reporting and disclosures — and highlight potential vulnerabilities.

On May 8, federal grants expert Bob Lloyd will outline key areas where policies and procedures may need to be upgraded to promote organizational competitiveness and integrity, and to assure effective compliance. In 90 minutes of presentation followed by 30 minutes devoted to individual questions, participants will learn:

  • The regulatory structure of the requirements and why it’s important
  • The implementation schedule and what organizations should be on the look-out for
  • The key revised policies on topics such as pre-award review of grant applications, time and effort reporting, defining subrecipient and contractor relationships, subrecipient management and monitoring, and indirect cost recovery
  • Important changes to cost allowability standards
  • Revisions to the single audit threshold and testing scope
