The Thompson Grants Compliance Expert puts the critical information you need about the far-reaching impact of the uniform guidance at your fingertips in a convenient digital format so you can confidently navigate the entire grants lifecycle — from finding federal grant opportunities to submitting your closeout documents — and stay up-to-date on how the complicated rules affect you and your funding every step of the way.

Benefit From:

  • The entire Thompson Grants Compliance Expert Library, including:
    • Federal Grants Development Handbook – Find federal funding, develop competitive proposals and take the steps needed to stay in compliance with the complicated rules that govern federal dollars. Most importantly, you'll stay on top of new grant guidance, merit criteria and risk-prevention procedures — all issues of particular importance as you work to understand the requirements of the uniform guidance and avoid disqualified proposals.
    • Federal Grants Management Handbook – The uniform guidance identifies the procedures and expectations for anyone who works with or monitors grants, but, more importantly, it shifts the focus from compliance to a new emphasis on performance. As the most comprehensive and trusted guide for the federal grants community since 1978, this resource can help you manage your funds in light of the increasingly complicated regulatory landscape, including how the guidance impacts financial management systems, procurement and property standards, audit resolutions, time and effort documentation, financial and performance reporting, and more!
    • Single Audit Information Service – This A-to-Z guide breaks down the most complex and potentially confusing single audit requirements for grant recipients that expend more than $750,000 in agency funding. But what if your organization doesn't make the audit threshold? Are you still subject to a federal audit? What should you prepare for? Find out about the audit process, different types of audits, the most recurring audit findings and how to avoid them.
    • Techniques for Monitoring Federal Subawards, 4th Edition – A no-nonsense reference for pass-through entities, subrecipients and contractors alike, this guide is a must have for any who need to understand their increased responsibilities under the uniform guidance.
  • The Complete Thompson Grants Webinar Archives – with 24/7 access to 40+ on-demand training webinars covering a wide variety of topics.
