Webinar Details

Prerequisites: None

Recommended Field of Study: Specialized Knowledge and Applications

Program Knowledge Level: Basic

Advanced Preparation: None

Whether you are new to federal grants or have years of experience, it is critical to master the rules for writing proposals. That is because under the uniform guidance, what you write in your proposal determines not just whether you will win an award: it determines your success post-award.

In fact, using old, tried-and-true grant-writing practices for how you design your project activities and describe deliverables and outcomes can later sabotage your ability to demonstrate compliance and performance. That is a risk—and disadvantage—you cannot afford as competition and management pressures for federal grants intensifies.

You need to make sure your very next proposal goes out with the right format and the right presentation of everything from objectives that can be properly measured to strong internal control systems. This webinar will show you what you need to know. 

Register now for The Relationship Between Proposal Writing and Grant Compliance and Performance.

In this 90-minute webinar, Elizabeth Gombash—a nationally recognized authority in grant writing and grants management—will explain how the uniform guidance links the way that proposals are written with how you have to demonstrate compliance and performance. Step by step, you will master strategies that work hard for you all the way from pre-award through administration.

Learn proposal-writing basics. You will learn to align what you write with OMB’s pre-award guidance on everything from measurable objectives to outcomes. You will know how to spot potential trouble spots before you submit your proposal. You will also know the best ways to address performance, risks and remedies. Plus, you will have the chance to ask your own questions during the Q&A portion of the webinar.

Reserve your space now to upgrade your proposal-writing for greater success pre-award and post-award, including how to:

  • Understand how proposal writing affects grant compliance and performance
  • Navigate the complexities of making concept development part of a strong proposal
  • Write a realistic, true “measurable objective” and use a logic-model format to articulate the impact it will have on performance
  • Design realistic deliverables, outputs and outcomes to relate directly to federal performance expectations
  • Self-assess your degree of responsiveness or risk when writing a grant proposal
  • Address the expectations of Non-Federal Entities as you write

Do not let a poorly written proposal undercut your ability to demonstrate compliance and success down the road. Take this opportunity to upgrade from “Grant Writing 101” to the next-gen strategies it takes to meet uniform guidance expectations.
