It’s about Time: Pre-award Costs, Tydings, Liquidation, Extensions, and More

February 1, 2022

1:00 pm – 2:30 pm EST


Course Description:

With unprecedented amounts of new, federal funding in response to the pandemic, grantees are under pressure to spend quickly, but also wisely. This session will discuss issues related to timely spending. What does it mean to obligate the funds? Can we transfer prior costs to federal funding sources? How long can we stretch programs / services past the period end date? When must obligations be liquidated? Can we extend our period of performance?
