Unless your financial management systems are fully compliant, you could face audit findings and have your costs questioned. The sooner you identify your own risks, the better you protect your funding.

Spotting—and mitigating—those risks starts with understanding the most-current financial management system requirements, including what costs are allowable and what internal controls can defuse potential issues. You must also know where errors commonly arise and how to avoid them.

Now, a new webinar presents compliance strategies you can implement immediately to safeguard the funds you need to operate.

Register now for Evaluating and Enhancing Financial Management Systems.

This 90-minute webinar maps out the core components of financial management system requirements. Crowe LLP compliance experts Eric Russell and Samuel Twyman cover methods for mitigating noncompliance risks, including common errors pertaining to allowable costs and internal controls.

Avoid audit findings and questioned costs. You’ll learn how to navigate pitfalls using internal audits and strategies such as establishing centralized grants management functions.  Plus, you’ll have the chance to ask your own questions during the Q&A portion of the webinar.

Reserve your space now to identify the risks surrounding your own financial management systems, including:

  • An overview of requirements governing the systems, internal controls and allowable costs
  • Common errors now being identified during audit procedures—and how to spot and fix the root causes of these errors before an audit
  • How to identify allowable cost and system-related risks to which financial assistance recipients are exposed
  • Strategies and methods for mitigating the risk of noncompliance
  • The project manager’s role with allowable costs and internal controls

Remember, the better you identify your risks, the better you can mitigate them to safeguard the funds you need to operate.
