As an organization becomes involved with federal grants, many binding legal and regulatory knots requiring transparency and disclosure get tied early and often. Focusing in on the requirements, however, involves looking across a broad landscape of federal rules. Further, that landscape could be changing, in light of a recent proposal from the Office of Management and Budget.

It makes sense for grant recipients and subrecipients to be well-informed about what’s currently required … and what’s likely to come. This webinar pulls together the requirements in checklist fashion to assure that you know what your organization must represent to its grant awarding agencies. Also, we will show you how trouble can loom if you fail to take the requirements seriously.

You’ll learn about the current federal requirements governing:

  • Making false statements
  • Submitting false claims
  • Certifying application content
  • Other certifications as appropriate
  • Assuring compliance with cross-cutting federal public policies
  • Implementing an employee code of conduct with teeth
  • Affirmatively disclosing fraud, bribery and gratuity violations
  • Reporting accurate grant project expenditures
  • Supporting indirect cost data
  • Reporting routine project deviations
  • Communicating about problems, delays and adverse conditions
  • Protecting grant whistleblowers
  • Submitting complete reports

Join us for this thorough and authoritative assessment of required federal grant transparency … now and in the future.
