What happens when noncompliance is discovered after federal funding has been awarded?

You immediately face disclosure obligations. It is critical to handle disclosure and agency interaction effectively. It helps if you can point to a strong compliance program that shows your commitment to meeting your obligations under the Uniform Guidance.

Preparing now can make all the difference in avoiding severe enforcement, including staggering penalties under the False Claim Act. Let an expert on the Uniform Guidance show you how.

With federal funds important to your nonprofit’s revenue stream, this webinar is a must! In just 90 minutes, Venable’s Diz Locaria takes you through the entire lifecycle of what happens when noncompliance is discovered.  You will learn the elements of effective compliance under the Uniform Guidance and how to turn disclosure and cooperation into powerful tools for resolving problems—without facing severe penalties.

Prepare for everything “noncompliance” can trigger. You will learn steps to take when an issue is brought to light. You will master proactive disclosure, how to write a good disclosure statement and how much (or little) to include. You will also explore the most productive ways to interact with the agencies involved. Plus, you will have the chance to ask your own questions during the Q&A portion of the webinar.

Reserve your space now for the know-how to handle noncompliance and resolve audit findings without facing staggering penalties, including: 

  • A clear understanding of the compliance program requirements under the Uniform Guidance and disclosure obligations for nonprofit grantees and contractors
  • Awareness of the specific consequences for noncompliance
  • Insights into when making disclosures may be the right strategy—even when such disclosures may not be officially required
  • Best practices for preparing a written disclosure and liaising with agencies that are involved

Don’t miss this opportunity to create your nonprofit’s strongest strategy for compliance and for defusing any noncompliance issues that may still arise.
