July 15, 2020 at 1:00 pm EST

“Is this allowable?” is one of the most common, but sometimes difficult, questions that grants personnel face. This presentation will provide participants with an overview of the cost principles and selected items of cost found in Part 200 of the Uniform Grants Guidance. This presentation will also include an overview of best practices for compliant allowability procedures and internal controls, and review all relevant factors that non-federal entities must consider when determining allowability of costs.

July 22, 2020 at 1:00 pm EST

This virtual training will focus on the federal requirements from the Uniform Grant Guidance dealing with financial management systems, procurement, and inventory management. Looking at prior audit and monitoring findings, we will discuss common mistakes and compliance issues grantees and subrecipients often run into in managing their federal grants.  This session will also cover some best practices to help strengthen internal controls and void these common pitfalls in the world of grants management.

July 29, 2020 at 1:00 pm EST

This virtual training will review the time and effort rules under EDGAR as well as ED’s new cost allocation guide, provide examples of time and effort forms, review flexibilities to address teleworking and discuss audit findings while providing best practices on how to avoid them.
