Washington, DC (PRWEB) October 31, 2014
OMB’s new governmentwide policies require full recognition of federally negotiated rates where problems exist and mandate alternative methods for recognition of subrecipient indirect costs. The Nov. 13 Federal Fund Management Advisor webinar, “Indirect Cost Recovery for Nonprofits — It’s a New Day Thanks to OMB Grant Reform,” will provide nonprofit entities with an understanding of how to formulate indirect cost rate documentation.
In 60 minutes of presentation followed by 30 minutes dedicated to individual questions, Federal Fund Management Advisor Principal Bob Lloyd will discuss:
- What the federal rules say about decisions to charge costs indirectly
- The real requirements for federal agency indirect cost cognizance
- How federal agencies will be forced to recognize federally negotiated rates
- What options are available for nonprofit organization subrecipients to recover indirect costs
- What kinds of discretion pass-through entities will still have
- The current procedures for development and presentation of indirect cost documentation
- Which federal resources are geared specifically to helping nonprofit organizations in their efforts to recover indirect costs
- What role an organization’s single audit will play in the process
