Washington, DC (PRWEB) February 17, 2015
OMB has adopted reform policies that better direct the subaward process, but details remain unclear. “What Flows Through? — How to Apply OMB’s New Uniform Requirements to ‘Lower Tier’ Organizations,” the Feb. 26 Federal Fund Management Advisor webinar, will outline the specifics of “flow-through” and help sort through the confusion on how a pass-through entity should proceed — and what a “lower tier” entity should expect — going forward.
In 60 minutes of presentations followed by 30 minutes devoted to individual questions, Federal Fund Management Advisor Principal Bob Lloyd will provide answers to these and other questions:
- What federally required data elements must be included in the agreement?
- How should the requirements of OMB’s uniform guidance be communicated?
- What features of individual federal agency implementing regulations should be added?
- What role do the federal Statements of Assurances (SF 424B, SF 424D) play?
- What options exist for required recognition of subrecipient indirect costs?
- How are “flow-through” policies adjusted for fixed-amount awards?
- What best practices should pass-through entities follow to avoid imposing unnecessary and costly burdens on subrecipients while assuring their accountability?
- How much room is there for negotiation?
