Washington, DC (PRWEB) May 16, 2014

The May 29 program from Federal Fund Management Advisor’s webinar series on implementing OMB’s federal grants reform, “Cost Allowability 101: The Revised Course for Governments, Universities and Nonprofits,” will analyze and evaluate the consolidation of the three current OMB cost allowability circulars into a single policy document that applies to state and local governments, institutions of higher education and nonprofit organizations.

In 90 minutes of presentations followed by 30 minutes devoted to individual questions, participants will hear from Federal Fund Management Advisor Principal Bob Lloyd. Participants will learn:

  • How the new cost principles are structured and why that’s important
  • How implementation will occur for grants and cooperative agreements, and for contracts
  • How an organization can take advantage of the changes in the meantime
  • What important policy protections for recipients and subrecipients have been retained and which ones have been removed
  • Which selected items of cost have been added and deleted
  • Which selected items have language changes that are restrictive
  • Which selected items have language changes that broaden allowability
  • How to assert allowability when a cost is not specifically mentioned
