Course Description

With unprecedented levels of Covid-relief funding, attention turns to federal funds – and compliance with federal regulations becomes even more critical. All federal education grant funds received by local districts

(LEAs) and charters through state education agencies (SEAs) are subject to the Uniform Grant Guidance (UGG) and the Education Department General Administrative Regulations (EDGAR). New to navigating these rules? Interested in receiving the latest federal financial, regulatory and legislative developments? The Bruman Group is offering an in-person EDGAR/UGG workshop that will highlight the most important federal regulatory requirements for grants management, and get you ready for the new school year.

EDGAR/UGG workshop topics include:              

  • Time and effort certifications;
  • Internal controls;
  • Timely obligation of funds and carryover;
  • Financial management rules;
  • Record retention;
  • Property/equipment/supplies inventory controls;
  • Procurement and conflicts of interest;
  • Construction and Davis Bacon requirements;
  • Allowable costs;
  • Audits and monitoring requirements and more!

All recipients of federal grant dollars (e.g., CARES Act, ESSA, IDEA, Perkins, AEFLA and School Nutrition) must comply with these rules to avoid audit exposure and to be eligible for available flexibility.
