Uniform Guidance Symposium (Nov 13-14)

The Uniform Guidance has changed the landscape for those that are in the Grants and Cooperative Agreement community.

These changes drastically affect anyone managing grants and cooperative agreements. It’s critical that your organization is not only up-to-date on the latest rules and regulations, and that they understand the sensitivities and important compliance areas for your organization. Please join us at the “Uniform Guidance Symposium” in Washington, DC, on November 13 and 14, to understand the requirements under 2 CFR 200, how recent changes may impact your federal programs and where to practically begin.

Without the proper guidance and tools, you and your current and future funding are at risk unlike ever before so don’t wait until it’s too late! Attend the “Uniform Guidance Symposium” to get the information you need on the management of grants and cooperative agreements. This two-day training event includes sessions delivered by compliance experts with deep, contemporary and relevant grants, accounting and audit experience. You’ll return to your office with clear guidance on how to comply, while demonstrating performance and success as well as the fundamentals to revise or revisit your policies and procedures.

Post-Conference Deep Dive (Nov 15)

Uniform Guidance contains certain standards with which all Federal grant recipients (except states) are required to comply when acquiring property or services with Federal funds. These requirements, termed the “Procurement Standards,” are set forth at 2 CFR 200.317 through 200.326 and focus primarily on facilitating competition in procurement. Join us for a post-conference workshop that focuses on specific procurement techniques and what organizations must do to remain compliant. We will address the following topics:

  • Elements of Full and Open Competition
  • Required Procurement Policies
  • Pre-Procurement Review Process
  • Noncompetitive procurements
  • How to Conduct Cost or Price Analysis
  • Conflicts of interest
  • Adequately Documenting Procurements
  • Common Pitfalls and How to Avoid Them
