Webinar Details

Recommended Field of Study: Specialized Knowledge and Applications

Program Knowledge Level: Basic

Advanced Preparation: None

With billions in federal grant dollars flowing in response to the pandemic, lots of recipient and subrecipient organizations are confronting federal fund management questions that they’ve probably never encountered. At the center of many of these questions are requirements of the “uniform guidance”— officially, the “Uniform Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles and Audit Requirements,” codified by OMB in Title 2 of the Code of Federal Regulations, Part 200.

This regulation shows up in virtually all the grant programs authorized under the COVID-19 related grants legislation. For example, the Treasury Department is requiring recipient governmental units of its flexible $350 billion State and Local Fiscal Recovery Fund to follow 2 CFR 200. Scores of other grant programs authorized under the American Rescue Plan Act and run by other federal grantor agencies are also subject to the requirements.       

So people in your federally funded organization need a working understanding of the key policies contained in this hefty federal document. A leisurely “deep dive” would be nice but, right now, what’s probably needed is a timely “quick immersion.” That’s what this webinar will provide. Presented in laymen’s terms, the session will highlight provisions from the uniform guidance that decisionmakers need to grasp and follow. Participants will learn about:

  • Required documentation for personnel expenses (time and effort reporting).
  • Key steps to take when purchasing goods and services with grant funds.
  • How to “partner” with subrecipients and then monitor them appropriately.
  • Rules for taking care of equipment and supplies acquired under a federal award.
  • Why the question, “Can we charge this to our grant?” is often answered, “It depends.”
  • The long list of required grant reports and the consequences for doing them late or wrong.
  • Why the people in the finance department who sign those reports act like they do.
  • What auditors are looking for, and how to help send them away satisfied.
  • How effective (or ineffective) grants management can affect future federal funding.

Bob Lloyd, principal of Federal Fund Management Advisor™, will conduct this session and provide chapter and verse about, “Where does it say that?” An objective subject matter expert with over 40 years of experience in federal award implementation, he has seen the consequences when these grant management fundamentals are not followed.
