Upcoming Federal Fund Management Advisor Webinar to Discuss Impact of OMB’s Grant Reform on HR Policies

Share Article

Participants will learn about OMB’s recent policy changes from the unique perspective of human resource management.

After a recently completed three-year-long process of federal grants management reform led by the U.S. Office of Management and Budget (OMB), many policies affecting human resource management have been changed and repackaged into a single detailed document that applies to governmental units, colleges and universities, and nonprofit organizations that receive grants directly from the federal government and indirectly through other organizations. In the June 24 Federal Fund Management Advisor webinar, “What Human Resources Managers Need to Know About OMB’s Federal Grant Reform,” federal grants expert Bob Lloyd will help participants understand how OMB’s grant reforms affect HR policies.

The June 24 webinar will cover federal grant-related requirements concerning:

  • Employee classification
  • Salaries and wages
  • Effort reporting
  • Escalation (cost of living adjustments, promotions)
  • Incentive pay
  • Severance
  • Compensated absences (paid time off)
  • Pension plan costs
  • Employee insurance
  • Post-retirement health benefits
  • Travel
  • Dependent care expenses
  • Relocation expenses
  • Independent contractor services
