Are You Sure You Know How To Manage Subrecipients?

December 26, 2012 | By Jerry Ashworth | Post a Comment

So, just how well do you understand the grantee-subgrantee relationship? One of the most common audit findings occurs when a prime grant recipient has failed to correctly identify a subrecipient as such and has instead executed a contract. Such a finding can lead to the complete disallowance of the entire amount of the subaward.

Don’t let this happen to you! To help gain more insight on what you need to know about subrecipient relationships, Thompson is providing a special two-part webinar in January 2013. Interested parties can sign up for both parts, or select either portion of the series if that meets their needs.

Grants law specialist Stacia Le Blanc will lead the webinars, entitled “Subrecipient Relationships: How to Navigate the Complexities – A Two-Part Webinar Series,” on Jan. 10 and Jan. 17, with each session lasting 90 minutes. Attendees may earn 3.0 CPE credit hours upon the completion of the audio conference series and its post-conference survey, or 1.5 CPE credit hours if they attend either one of the sessions.

In the first webinar, Le Blanc will discuss how a subrecipient differs from a vendor, applicable federal requirements and what to do if awardees incorrectly categorized a subrecipient or vendor. In the second webinar, attendees will gain an in-depth understanding of how to monitor subrecipients, and what to avoid in doing so. The webinars will enable attendees to ask questions during a live Q&A portion.

The cost of the two-part webinar series is $399, or $239 if you opt to register for only one of the sessions. Either way, there is much to learn.

In addition, Le Blanc will also lead a webinar on Jan. 29 entitled “Federal Grant Reporting Requirements: How to Get Them Right and Not Pay the Price,” in which she will discuss the importance of proper reporting for your federal grants and subgrants as the federal government continues to crack down on improper payments. This session will address the requirements for financial and performance reporting for federal grants; what you need to know about Federal Funding Accountability and Transparency Act and American Recovery and Reinvestment Act reporting; recordkeeping requirements and best practices for subrecipient reporting.

To register for these worthwhile webinars, contact Thompson by phone at 1-800-925-1878 or visit
