Managing Stimulus Grants And Subgrants: Avoiding Current Vulnerabilities
Venue: Your Office
|Event Date/Time: Sep 30, 2010|
Itâ€™s been a year and a half since the enactment of the law and grantees and subgrantees are well underway in implementing the awards. Most have already closed the books on their first fiscal year in which the funds were spent and their independent auditors have been testing the expenditures in light of rigorous new federal audit guidance and tougher standards for reporting internal control deficiencies. Meanwhile, the Government Accountability Office (GAO) and the federal inspectors general, operating in concert under something called the Recovery Accountability and Transparency (RAT) Board are issuing numerous reports of their own concerning the vulnerabilities of the programs.
This audio conference will capture the details of all of these developments and identify the steps that grantees and subgrantees with Stimulus awards should continue to take to avoid problems and to assure proper stewardship of these funds.
* What is the current reporting regime for Stimulus grants and how can being late affect your future funding?
* What specific tests are non-federal auditors being told to make when reviewing Stimulus grant expenditures and how to be ready for those tests?
* What instructions are federal agencies receiving on managing Stimulus grants that are having ripple effects on recipients and subrecipients?
* How are requirements associated with the Stimulus affecting your other federal awards?
* What administrative vulnerabilities have federal auditors identified that have implications for recipients and subrecipients?
