A Guide to Managing Federal Grants for Colleges and Universities is a comprehensive resource for college and university sponsored research administrators. It 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 you must handle time and effort reporting, procurement under grants, direct charging certain costs, single audit preparations, subrecipient monitoring, and much more.
Managing Federal Grants provides the practical information grants managers need — on everything from solicitation through audit — to help limit their institution’s risk of disallowed costs and avoid the loss of federal funding and public relations nightmares. As a subscriber to Managing Federal Grants, you’ll receive:
- Federal Grants News, an informative monthly newsletter that monitors the entire federal grants scene, covering events unfolding in Washington and their likely impact on your institution. Delivered ten times a year to your USPS mailbox, emailed by PDF and archived on the subscriber-only website.
- 20 sections of expert “hands-on” guidance on every step in the grants cycle — from solicitation through audit — housed on the subscriber-only website for convenient 24/7 access.
- Federal Agency Weekly is a weekly email that permits subscribers to track federal grants policy issuances, rulemakings and guidance development from NIH, NSF, DoD, NASA, OMB, Grants.gov, OIG and numerous other government agencies and offices. Dozens of websites and listservs are scanned by our researchers to provide you with those most relevant to grants management on campus, all listed in one place to save you and your staff hours of time and effort.
And this wealth of valuable content — print, email and Web-based — is all updated regularly, well-organized, searchable and available to all employees on the same campus for one subscription price.
