An important factor affecting the allowability of costs in federal grant awards is whether the cost is “consistent with policies and procedures that apply uniformly to both federally financed and other activities of the non-federal entity.” That’s true whether or not the type of cost involved is specifically listed in the “Selected Items of Cost” found in Subpart E of 2 CFR 200 — the OMB’s uniform guidance.

When you look closely at that list or consider other costs that may arise while doing grant business, you start to see just how important well-crafted organizational policies can be in trying to support specific allowability decisions.

This webinar will help you to do that — precisely. We will look at the cost principles and consider the role that specific internal policies are required to have on each of these types of charges:

  • Salaries and wages
  • Compensated absences
  • Fringe benefits
  • Time and effort reporting
  • Severance pay
  • Employee health and welfare
  • Uniforms
  • Travel
  • Meeting expenses
  • Professional memberships
  • Training and education
  • Recruitment
  • Relocation
  • Dependent care


Now is the time to fill in cost allowability policy gaps. Join us for this thorough review of the policies your organization needs.

Allowable Charges

The costs of webinars sponsored by Federal Fund Management Advisor™ are allowable charges to your federal grants and subgrants. The cost principles issued by OMB under its uniform guidance (and applicable to all types of awardees) state, “The cost of training and education for employee development is allowable” (2 CFR 200.472).
