Federal Grants Update 2016 – Learning from Experience
Because 3,500+ of you completed Federal Grants Update in 2014 and 2015, we realized that we had the opportunity to go a bit deeper into the key issues surrounding Uniform Guidance implementation. And there have been enough changes to 2 CFR 200 that we want you to come back to make sure you’re up-to-date (thank you, OMB, for FAPIIS).
So what’s new for FGU in 2016?
First, we centered on these core themes of grants management to help you delve into difficulties your organization may have had in implementing 2 CFR 200:
- Risk Mitigation
Next, we designed Federal Grants Update 2016 to include more interaction. This will allow instructors and students to share their experiences and challenges that have begun to stand out as Federal agencies, pass-through entities, and recipients implement the Uniform Guidance – such as evaluation and internal controls. Our goal is to help you focus on the important things that you and your organization still need to do to be compliant as well as share your successes.
Finally, we wanted to make sure that you have the opportunity to participate according to your schedule and ability to travel. So we added a few opportunities for you to participate via the Remote Student Experience, in addition to our Classroom and Virtual Live Classroom modalities.
That said, we want to assure you that there are certain things that we hold dear with Federal Grants Update:
- You will receive a refresher on the Uniform Guidance as well as FAPIIS, the DATA Act, Inspector General Reports, and potential Congressional actions
- We track all of the content for changes – coming and unforeseen – so we can make sure the information you receive is as fresh as possible
The bottom line is that we truly care about Federal Grants Update being your go-to annual refresher course as a grants professional whether it’s your first class with us or your tenth.
We look forward to seeing you – whether in-person and online.
