When federal funding flows down to states and local governments, so do federal requirements for maintaining proper oversight of subgrantees and contractors.

Unfortunately, all-too-many state and local agency grantees still follow old rules. They have missed (or misunderstood) the host of changes Uniform Guidance has made in what must—and must not—be done. Without understanding what now constitutes proper oversight of subrecipients, agencies risk violating requirements every time federal grant funds are used to procure goods and services.

Here’s how to make sure you’re in step with the current requirements.

Avoid violating requirements you may not even know exist. Step by step, these compliance experts walk you through how Uniform Guidance has changed key aspects of grant funding. You will also examine where—and how—new requirements apply when funds are passed down to subgrantees and contractors. Plus, you will have the chance to ask your own questions during the Q&A portion of the webinar.
