You may charge the cost of a subscription to this platform against your federal award? Within Section 200.454(b), the uniform grants guidance contains an allowable item of cost for memberships, subscriptions and professional activity costs. Of course, you’ll want to verify that there is no specific restriction in the approved grant budget or the award documents with your program director, finance officer or granting agency, but there is an excellent chance that your federal award can be used to pay for a subscription.

Thompson Grants’ Guide to Managing Federal Grants for Colleges and Universities is designed to help those responsible for federal fund management on campus perform effectively during one of the most challenging periods ever for the field of grants management. In addition to the normal risks that colleges and universities face, OMB grant reforms have changed the way institutions of higher education must handle time and effort reporting, procurement under grants, direct charging certain costs, single audit preparations, subrecipient monitoring and much more. The Guide provides the practical information grants managers and sponsored research administrators need to help limit their institution’s risk of disallowed costs and avoid the loss of federal funding and public relations nightmares. 

The Guide to Managing Federal Grants for Colleges and Universities is one of three handbooks that make up the compliance guidance in the Thompson Grants Compliance Expert for Colleges and Universities – an all-in-one solution that will cover your institution’s compliance needs throughout the entire grants lifecycle, from pre-award to post-award and closeout.
