The federal government’s response to the coronavirus pandemic has involved the largest infusion of grant funds in our nation’s history. Two massive statutes enacted by Congress have pumped hundreds of billions of dollars into governmental units, health care providers, elementary and secondary schools, higher education institutions, and nonprofit service organizations.

Much of this money is being used to pay people to keep doing critical work or to initiate new programs designated to counter the pandemic. And, while federal awarding agencies have made some efforts to streamline the processes and requirements that govern these funds, the fact remains that there are laws, regulations and award terms and conditions that still have to be followed.

A lot of these requirements have to do with human resources management. To help meet the current federal grant accountability challenges, human resources managers in recipient and subrecipient organizations need to understand key grant administration and cost policies. This webinar is tailored to help HR managers do just that. Participants will learn about:

  • Overlapping federal policies — some applicable to you as an employer; others applicable to you as a grantee
  • Cost allowability of employee salaries, wages and fringe benefits
  • Employee time and effort documentation requirements
  • Policies related to employee health, morale and welfare
  • Recruitment and relocation allowances
  • Security protection for personnel and work products
  • Ownership and use of intellectual property
  • Differentiating employees from independent contractors using longstanding IRS requirements and new Labor Department rules
  • Contracting for professional services

Federal grants management requirements cover a full circle of responsibilities within recipient and subrecipient organizations throughout the lifecycle of your federal grants. Human resources managers need to know about a critical slice that affects the workforce. To gain the knowledge you need, attend this timely and informative session present by Bob Lloyd, principal of Federal Fund Management Advisor.™
