Course Description:



Risk assessment is one of the newest—and most dangerous—areas of OMB’s Uniform Grant Guidance.

For starters, the requirements are complex. Plus, many grants professionals think risk assessments and the accompanying merit reviews only apply pre-award. Not true! Agencies assess risk in post-award, too. From the proposal through reporting and auditing, even small things can add up to a high-risk rating that cuts you off from new awards and triggers cancellations, recovery of funds and even criminal penalties.

Don’t let old-fashioned grants writing and management put everything at risk. Here’s how to get the pre-award and post-award teams working closer than ever to keep risk-assessment outcomes favorable.

In this 90-minute webinar, nationally known grants expert Sandra Swab will explain the risk evaluations requirements and how to demonstrate the performance, accountability and transparency federal agencies now expect to see in grant proposals and grant management. Whether you’re a recipient or pass-through entity, you’ll learn practical ways to achieve a low-risk rating that keeps you competitive—and compliant.

Keep your funding, avoid sanctions and penalties. You’ll discover ways for pre-award and post-award teams to work together, including how create greater awareness of potential risks and steps for addressing them before an agency assesses your program. You’ll also get specific insights into risk-raising areas such as improper payments. Plus, you’ll 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 achieve positive outcomes with risk assessments, including:
  • The requirements for risk-based assessments and evaluations
  • The tools the government may use in providing additional information on eligibility requirements and the financial integrity of award applicants
  • Criteria agencies may use in conducting risk-based evaluations
  • How federal agencies can use specific award conditions to address grantees’ risk-based issues
  • How to manage specific award conditions associated with risk-based criteria—including how to address when specific conditions are met
  • How to identify pass-through entities’ specific responsibilities for meeting the requirements for using risk-based evaluations for subawards
  • And more!
Remember, failing to take strong steps to reduce risks can knock you out of the running for awards and lead to recovery of funds, cancellation of your grant program and even civil and criminal penalties. You need to take the risk out of risk evaluations—starting now.
