High Risk Compliance Areas and Best Practices
for Grants Management  

Live presentation by Dan Durst, Manager, Capital Edge Consulting

Oversight of federal programs has intensified since the introduction of Uniform Guidance and organizations are still adapting to the compliance requirements. Single Audit findings suggest that organizations are still struggling with cost allocation, time and effort reporting, subrecipient monitoring, and procurement. In this discussion we will touch on each of the high risk compliance areas and review best practices to help organizations avoid costly audit findings.

Learning Objectives:

  • Highest risk compliance areas based on actual Single Audit findings.
  • Best practices for cost allocation on federal awards.
  • Best practices for time and effort reporting.
  • Best practices for subrecipient administration.
  • Best practices for compliant procurement.
