For nearly ten years, the federal government’s guidance about how grant recipients and subrecipients must buy goods and services with their awards has been a moving target. Delays in effective dates, responses to the COVID-19 pandemic, and new statutory and executive order policies combined to challenge organizations.

Now, newly issued revisions to the Office of Management and Budget’s uniform guidance will put in place, effect on October 1, firm standards for procurement for the foreseeable future. They address OMB expectations for locating and soliciting sources, awarding contracts, and getting what you pay for.

So, the time has come for recipients and subrecipients to make sure their procurement procedures align with the federal policies. This comprehensive webinar will help you do that. We’ll cover:

  • Subrecipient and contractor determinations
  • Recipient and subrecipient codes of conduct
    • Who and what is covered
  • Acquisition planning
    • Conducting market research
    • Handling domestic preference
    • 2 CFR 184: Build America Buy America (BABA)
  • Solicitation and competition
  • Flexible dollar threshold requirements
    • Micro-purchases
    • Small purchases
  • Acceptable procurement methods and contract types
    • Contractor vetting for suspension and debarment (2 CFR 180)
  • Required contract clauses
  • Contractor monitoring and oversight
  • Special practices for acquisition of:
    • Architect and engineering services
    • Single audits
    • Social services   


  • Sponsored projects administrators
  • Grants management specialists
  • Grant project directors
  • Purchasing agents
  • Executives
  • Finance directors
  • Legal counsels
  • Accounting staff
  • Internal auditors
  • External auditors
