When recipients of federal grants turn around and award some of the funds they receive to other organizations, the federal government expects that they will exercise prudent oversight of the subrecipients. Those expectations got a real boost when the Office of Management and Budget recently revised and embellished policies for how that oversight is to be conducted in what has been dubbed the “Super Circular.”

Because so many federal grant programs involve extensive subaward activity, it’s not surprising that OMB would weigh in so emphatically. In the new reality, federal subrecipient monitoring policies now exist at the intersection of compliance and internal control.

While there are some steps that have to be conducted for every subrecipient regardless of the size of the subaward, there are others where judgment has to be exercised about whether and to what extent these steps need to be carried out. For most so-called “pass-through entities,” that means tailoring an approach and balancing risk and resources.

This webinar is intended to help organizations craft a practical and effective subaward outcome. Participants will learn:

  • How to stratify subrecipient organizations based on award size and risk.
  • How to craft subaward agreements with post-award monitoring in mind.
  • All about FFATA, and what it says about subrecipient reporting responsibilities.
  • What subaward monitoring steps are “non-negotiable.”
  • How to create procedures for assuring subrecipient audit compliance.
  • How to draft “management decisions” on subrecipient audit findings.
  • The federal expectations for timely tracking of corrective actions.
  • What role agreed-upon procedure audits of subrecipients should play.
  • How to determine whether a site visit is necessary, and what outcomes are desirable.
  • How to balance effective oversight with supportive technical assistance.
  • What to expect from auditors who will assess pass-through entity procedures.

Join Bob Lloyd, principal of Federal Fund Management AdvisorÔ, for this thorough review of a key federal grants management responsibility.
