The Uniform Guidance made significant changes in what is and isn’t acceptable in using federal grants to make purchases.  The changes were so significant that the Office of Management and Budget gave grant recipients a generous grace period for bringing policies and procedures into line with the new requirements and standards.

Now, that grace period is expiring.

With so much on the line, both grant recipients and auditors must make certain they’ve updated all the aspects of procurement that have been altered—first by the Uniform Guidance and then by OMB’s additional changes to those requirements. Here’s how to do it.

Register now for Purchasing Using Federal Grants: Understanding the Uniform Guidance Requirements.

In this 90-minute webinar, Troy Rector uses his expertise with federal grants, audits and assurance to alert both funding recipients and auditors to changes that must be made to procurement practices. From how the Uniform Guidance changes procurement standards to OMB’s new suggestions for auditing procurement, you’ll learn where updates are needed to comply with requirements.

Don’t guess what has changed. Learn exactly where and how to edit existing policies and procedures. In addition, to procurement standards, the webinar maps out how OMB suggests auditors approach procurement in the Single Audit. Plus, you’ll have the chance to ask your own questions during the Q&A portion of the webinar.

Reserve your space now to know how to bring procurement practices into full alignment with Uniform Guidance requirements, including:

  • Procurement standards under the Uniform Guidance
  • OMB’s recent (and pending) changes to those standards
  • Common edits necessary to bring procurement policies and procedures based on OMB circulars into alignment with Uniform Guidance requirements
  • OMB’s suggested audit procedures for testing procurement in a Single Audit

Remember, grace periods are expiring.  Don’t miss this opportunity to get expert guidance on how to update both procurement and audit procedures to comply with Uniform Guidance requirements.
