Basics for Non-State Entities (NSE) Using COVID-19 Grant Funds for Procurements
May 28, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm$89
During the unprecedented national emergency caused by the 2019 novel coronavirus (COVID-19), the US government made available grant funds to local governments and other grant eligible non-state entities (NSE). An NSE includes local governments, tribal governments, institutions of higher education (IHEs) that do not meet the definition of state, hospitals that do not meet the definition of state instrumentality, houses of worship (HOW), and other private nonprofit organizations (PNPs) (2 C.F.R. § 200.69).
Many of those affected have no experience with applying for, receiving, or administering grant funds.
When an entity receives grant funds, it must understand the requirements for using those funds to procure supplies or services. Failure to comply with the federal procurement requirements could have short- and long-term financial effects on the entity.
This presentation addresses the federal procurement requirements for eligible expenses, including:
· Whether a non-state entity (NSE) is eligible for reimbursement of the expenses.
· The procurement requirements for an eligible NSE.
· The procurement process an NSE must use for its contracting using federal funding.
Failure to understand eligibility requirements, compliance with federal procurement requirements, and properly document a procurement may result in no reimbursement, partial reimbursement, or returning funds to Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).
