May 13 Federal Fund Management Advisor Webinar to Examine Indirect Cost Options for Grantees

Share Article

Bob Lloyd, principal of Federal Fund Management Advisor, will review the three options grantees have to choose from when dealing with subrecipient indirect charges.

One of the most significant policy changes to come out of the Office of Management and Budget’s two-year federal grants reform effort relates to recognition of the indirect costs incurred by subrecipients. OMB is requiring that primary grantee and other pass-through entities accept those indirect charges through one of three options. “Dealing With the Indirect Costs of Your Subrecipients — Examine Your Options,” a May 13 webinar from Federal Fund Management Advisor, will help grantees and other pass-through entities decide how to best employ all of the options available to be both fair to their subrecipients and cost conscious, too.

During the May 13 webinar — led by federal grants expert Bob Lloyd — participants will learn:

  • How to use a federally approved indirect cost rate agreement
  • How to handle the indirect costs of an entity that is specifically instructed not to seek a federally negotiated rate
  • The parameters for use of the de minimis 10% rate
  • How to modify the rate negotiation procedures used by the federal government to accommodate negotiation at the pass-through level
  • How independent auditors can assist in providing assurance about indirect cost rates
