Webinar Details

Prerequisites: Some knowledge of federal grant management and audit requirements is helpful

Recommended Field of Study: Specialized Knowledge and Applications

Program Knowledge Level: Basic

Advanced Preparation: None

What most federal grants and subgrants pay for more than anything else is people — human resources. So, the intersection between standard personnel administrative practices and federal grant requirements is a critical one for those managing the human resource policies in federally funded organizations.

At a minimum, HR professionals need a working knowledge of the federal requirements for allowable expenses affecting employees and independent contractors. And, as the likely “knowledge managers” for their organizations, they need to figure out who else needs to be trained up on the federal grant rules so that those colleagues can avoid potentially costly missteps.

Now is the right time to gain this understanding. That’s because we’re still in the early stages of implementation of a reformed and repackaged set of grants management policies crafted by the U.S. Office of Management and Budget. The rules apply uniformly to all — governmental units, higher ed institutions and nonprofit organizations — that receive grants directly from the federal government and indirectly through other organizations.

This webinar will cull through the new rules and explain them from the unique perspective of human resource management. It’ll cover requirements for:

  • Worker classification under revised IRS policies
  • Salary, wage and benefit costs
  • Time and effort reporting
  • Pay escalation (cost of living adjustments, promotions)
  • Severance
  • Incentive pay and bonuses
  • Pension plan costs
  • Employee insurance
  • Compensated absences (Paid Time Off)
  • Post-retirement health benefits
  • Training and education
  • Travel
  • Dependent care costs
  • Relocation expenses
  • Services of independent contractors
