Washington, DC (PRWEB) August 26, 2014
A high-profile feature of the big package of federal grant reforms that the Office of Management and Budget rolled out late last year is the substantially overhauled set of policies on subaward management and monitoring. The Sept. 8 Federal Fund Management Advisor webinar, “How to Write Subaward Agreements Using OMB’s New Template,” will help pass-through entities craft subgrant documents that include the provisions that should be there and do not include those that don’t belong.
Federal Fund Management Advisor principal Bob Lloyd will provide 60 minutes of presentations followed by 30 minutes dedicated to individual questions. Participants will learn:
- Characteristics indicative of subawards of federal assistance
- The data elements that are required to be included in the award document
- Which federal policies applying to the pass-through entity must flow through
- Which federal policies don’t apply to subgrants by their terms
- What type of subaward guidance OMB is permitting federal agencies to issue
- The rules related to supplemental requirements crafted by the pass-through entity
- The generic features it makes sense to include in an agreement
- The requirements that will apply to so-called “fixed-amount subawards”
