Federal auditors increasingly focus on how well grantors and grantees monitor compliance throughout the year—and across every phase from grant application and award through execution and closeout. 

Now, a two-part webinar series shows you how to turn your own grants management process into an integrated and effective compliance monitoring program.

In this new series, Jack Reagan draws on three decades of experience with auditing government grants to help you strengthen compliance. In two 90-minute webinars, you’ll learn how to build your program and use it during the Single Audit to minimize the risk of disallowed costs while improving overall delivery of services.

Individually, each webinar zeros in on critical compliance-monitoring activities and data. Together, they help grantors and grantees achieve smoother audits—and better grant performance.

Once you’ve learned how to integrate compliance monitoring across the grants management lifecycle, this second webinar focuses on the audit process itself, including how to:

  • Leverage compliance-monitoring activities and data to support the eligibility of participants, subrecipient costs, payroll, and procurement and other non-payroll costs
  • Minimize the risk of disallowed costs
  • Demonstrate effective service delivery
  • Use compliance-monitoring reports to reduce the nature and extent of Single Audit procedures performed

You can register for either webinar. But register for both and you’ll benefit from a complete compliance-monitoring framework—and save $99.
