According to the federal Office of Management and Budget, when a portion of your federal grant portfolio involves subawards, it automatically ratchets up overall federal program risk. Many subrecipients didn’t get the facts about what they were getting themselves into when they first asked for and received a subaward.  

So, some of their post-award performance and administrative problems may be of their own making. But some of their challenges may be reinforced by a pass-through entity not making a proper effort to bring them up to speed early. To reduce the risk of noncompliance and substandard performance by these important award partners, the sensible course for pass-through entities is to roll out a welcoming “red carpet” at the start of performance periods. 

Weaving together specific federal instructions and proven best practices, this webinar will help you create a “red carpet” approach to clearly mark the route your subrecipients should take in the early stages of their subawards. You’ll get good ideas about:

  • Balancing the competing objectives of providing financial assistance and maintaining oversight
  • Conducting pre-award due diligence to identify weaknesses and rapidly build capacity
  • Briefing subrecipients on subaward terms and conditions using user-friendly language
  • Fostering subrecipient cooperation through incentives and rewards
  • Packaging start-up training modules and crafting periodic reinforcement
  • Assembling technical assistance resources and making them easy to use
  • Forming a monitoring strategy that promotes accountability without undue burden
  • Avoiding a “gotcha” approach when corrective action is needed

A “red carpet” approach offers the best option for fostering the kinds of trust and transparency that are needed for successful federal grant implementation. Join Bob Lloyd and Federal Fund Management Advisor™ for this practical and timely session.
