Description

Since Congress enacted the Single Audit Act forty years ago, grantees and subgrantees have generally regarded the audit as the primary tool to determine compliance and performance. We are now witnessing a marked shift, with monitoring by the federal awarding agency and the pass-through state agency taking on new importance in determining whether subgrantees are in compliance with both programmatic and administrative requirements. Federal and State monitors typically conduct a much more invasive examination of subrecipient activities as well as policies and procedures than what occurs through the audit process.

 

Now the U.S. Education Department has issued proposed EDGAR changes that would permit state pass-through agencies to allow subgrantees to further subgrant funds – but such authority would require subgrantees to satisfy the same pass-through responsibilities, including monitoring, that are currently carried out by the state.  As this focus on compliance shifts to the monitoring function at the federal, state and local level, both fiscal and programmatic grant managers need to ask whether they are prepared for all the changes. OMB has issued significant revisions to the Uniform Grant Guidance. These changes impose new requirements on the Pass-Through and subrecipients. Required internal controls on inventory, procurement, G-6 drawdowns, and mandatory disclosures will need to be revised.

 

And, of course, the November elections have the potential to profoundly impact on the role and direction of the federal government in both the education and workforce space.  Control of the House, Senate, and the White House are all up in the air going into this election season.  That means uncertainty about federal funding levels, reauthorization of key legislation like WIOA, and even whether federal agencies will move forward implementing regulations like the new Title IX rules.  Each potential dynamic of House, Senate, and Presidential control could bring a new dynamic to legislative negotiations – and the operation of federal programs more generally.

 

How will this uncertainty impact your programs?  What can – and should – you be doing to prepare? Come join program experts, administration officials, and peers for The Bruman Group’s Fall Forum.
