Washington, DC (PRWEB) January 18, 2013
There are numerous federal programs where commercial organizations are eligible to apply for and receive grants or subgrants, but the procedures for making these types of awards differ from those that are more familiar to the government, higher education and nonprofit sectors. In “Federal Grants and Subgrants to Commercial Firms — Hands-On Techniques for Managing These Unique Federal Assistance Instruments,” an upcoming Jan. 29 webinar from Federal Fund Management Advisor, federal grants expert Bob Lloyd will provide the tools and techniques for-profit organizations need to apply for and receive federal grants or subgrants.
This practical look at how to handle these special kinds of grants and subgrants will answer the following questions:
- What federal governmentwide administrative requirements apply and which ones don’t?
- Are there grants management policies that are unique to individual federal agency programs?
- How should risk management differ when profit makers are involved?
- Which cost principles are used for commercial entities and how do they differ from those affecting governments, universities and nonprofit organizations?
- Can a commercial organization earn a fee on a grant or subgrant?
- What incentive does a profit maker have to cost share?
- What happens to any grant-related income that a commercial firm might earn?
- Who owns the property purchased with grant or subgrant funds, and how is it dealt with at the end of the award?
- Since Circular A-133 doesn’t apply, what kind of audit is required and who pays for it?
