Under Uniform Guidance, non-federal entities face the very real possibility of having their labor costs disallowed. That’s because while the new rules take a welcome turn away from six-month certifications and monthly personnel activity, they create considerable ambiguity about exactly what is required.

Unless you eliminate that confusion at the start of 2018, auditors could question the accuracy of your time and effort reporting and the reliability of your documentation. Audit findings could even lead to cost disallowances.

Don’t put your funding at risk! Instead, put the right practices in place to handle time and effort reporting to the high standards auditors will expect.  Here is where to begin.

This 90-minute webinar clears the confusion over how federal award recipients and subrecipients should document personnel costs under the Uniform Guidance. Your guide is Capital Edge Consulting’s Dan Durst, an expert on federal grant and contract accounting and compliance, who provides step-by-step guidance on putting a reliable reporting system in place and preparing for a finding-free audit.

High-performance procedures for protecting your funds.  You will learn proven strategies for cutting through today’s compliance ambiguity with a practical system for documenting and reporting personnel costs. You will get early-warning on what to expect during an audit—and how to be ready to demonstrate accountability and performance. 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 keep personnel cost reporting from triggering audit findings, including:

  • Clear understanding of time and effort reporting under the Uniform Guidance
  • How to apply the new compensation cost principles
  • Best practices for developing a system for reporting time and effort
  • Audit procedures to anticipate
  • Recent time-and-effort-reporting findings and how to avoid similar issues with auditors

Remember, the Uniform Guidance makes major changes in what auditors expect with time and effort reporting.  Begin the year with best-practice processes—and documentation—to keep personnel costs from being questioned and disallowed.
