Upcoming Webinar Presentation to Offer Guidance on Subrecipient Monitoring Under OMB’s Recent Grant Reform

Share Article

In an upcoming webinar from Federal Fund Management Advisor, participants will learn about the new requirements on post-award oversight of subawards and how to develop effective compliance strategies in a practical, resource-sensitive manner.

When the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) and its federal agency partners overhauled and repackaged requirements for determining the types of legal instruments to use in making subawards, for assessing compliance and risk posed by subrecipients, and for drafting subaward agreements, the biggest changes were made in the area of post-award oversight. “Practical Subrecipient Monitoring Under OMB Grant Reform,” the July 29 Federal Fund Management Advisor webinar, will detail the changes and how to comply with them.

On July 29, Federal Fund Management Advisor Principal Bob Lloyd will provide 60 minutes of presentation followed by 30 minutes devoted to individual questions. Participants will learn:

  •     A quick “take” on the new requirements
  •     How a subaward agreement should convey compliance and performance expectations
  •     How to organize subrecipient monitoring based on dollar size and discernible risk
  •     How to fashion financial and performance reports that provide enough information to affect the scope of other forms of oversight
  •     How to spot deficiencies in award management at the subrecipient level and how to fashion workable corrective action plans
  •     How to use the Federal Audit Clearinghouse to assess subrecipient audit compliance
  •     How to issue timely management decisions on subrecipient audit findings
  •     When to consider use of agreed-upon procedures audits on subrecipients
  •     When and how to conduct a site visit
  •     How to offer training and technical assistance while maintaining a firm awarding agency posture
