Washington, DC (PRWEB) September 18, 2014
Federal grant-making agencies will be required to issue their final rules on OMB’s federal grant administrative, cost principles and audit requirements at the end of the year. The Sept. 29 Federal Fund Management Advisor webinar, “Creating Your Grant Reform Implementation ‘To Do’ List,” will help participants develop their own timetables for implementation — complete with steps to take now and others to put in place going forward — to make a seamless transition to the new policies.
In 60 minutes of presentations followed by 30 minutes dedicated to individual questions, Federal Fund Management Advisor principal Bob Lloyd will:
- Provide a snapshot of what implementation steps have already been taken at the federal level
- Identify the federal decisions that still haven’t been made or disclosed
- Analyze those policy areas that represent departures from past requirements and that will necessitate substantive recipient and subrecipient response including: subaward management and monitoring, procurement of goods and services, documentation of personnel costs (time and effort reporting), allowability of certain costs and indirect cost recovery
- Home in on what are likely to be future audit vulnerabilities under the new guidance
- Suggest “best practice” responses and a sensible approach to phasing in the changes
