The Office of Management and Budget and its federal awarding agency colleagues have been on a mission: to assure that federal grant recipients and subrecipients “establish and maintain effective internal control” over the property acquired with award funds. And now there’s a new wrinkle: the Trump Administration is floating the idea of new requirements about recovery and disposition of federally funded assets as part of its proposed infrastructure rebuilding program.

The rules for use, management, reporting and disposal of that property are already complicated, and they vary depending on the kind of property involved — equipment, supplies, real estate or intellectual property. Across the board, compliance with the applicable requirements is readily auditable and findings of noncompliance almost always demonstrate deficiencies of internal control. Small wonder, then, that auditors spend time looking at what they know is fertile territory.

With grant-acquired property so much in the cross-hairs, it makes sense to gain a solid understanding of the applicable requirements, particularly those that were changed or clarified in OMB’s “Super Circular.” This webinar will update you on what’s required and what actions you need to take to safeguard these federally funded assets.

You’ll learn how to:

  • Differentiate between “government-furnished” and “grant-acquired” property, and why that’s important, particularly in light of Trump Administration proposals;
  • Link purchasing actions with property management best practices;
  • Define various types of grant-acquired assets;
  • Sort through the confusing policies about copyrights, patents and other intellectual property;
  • Determine cost allowability for computing devices;
  • Choose among acceptable accounting methods for withdrawal of assets already in stock;
  • Create necessary property records with required data elements;
  • Craft compliant policies related to authorized use and prudent maintenance;
  • Decide about disposition of assets at the conclusion of a grant project or program;
  • Address property issues at award closeout and afterward; and
  • Recognize areas of audit vulnerability.
