Time To Learn More About OMB’s Uniform Grants Guidance

January 10, 2014 | By Jerry Ashworth | Post a Comment

conference-room-with-tv-1419673-m1You’ve heard about it; now’s your time to learn more about it. The Office of Management and Budget last month issued its uniform grants guidance, previously referred to as the “supercircular,” which is the most expansive grant reform since the Single Audit Act of 1984.

Because the guidance alters procedures and expectations for every federal granting agency, every federal grant recipient and everyone who works with grants, throughout the entire grants lifecycle, now is the time for everyone to get up to speed on what has changed, when the guidance becomes effective and how to stay in compliance.

Thompson will be hosting a 90-minute webinar on Thursday, Jan. 30, at 1 p.m. EST entitled, “OMB’s ‘Supercircular’: Fasten Your Seatbelts, Grant Reform Is Here!,” in which attorney and federal grants expert Tiffany R. Winters will provide attendees an initial definitive look at how the new grant reform guidance will alter how they administer federal grants with respect to their agency’s financial management system, procurement and property standards, audit resolution, time and effort documentation, allowability and pass-through agency responsibilities including subrecipient monitoring.

This webinar will help attendees develop an understanding of the timing of guidance, as well as its structure and format. The session also will raise awareness of the general requirements now governing grants development and management, while exploring the major changes from prior OMB circulars.

Attendees also will benefit from practical examples of what agencies can do now to ease the coming changes, and during the live Q&A portion of the webinar, they can ask their own specific questions. This webinar will be beneficial for everyone in the grants community, from federal agency officials to grant recipients and subrecipients.

And as always with Thompson webinars, CPE credits are available. Go to ThompsonInteractive.com to find out more about registering for the webinar.
