MICPA Governmental Accounting & Auditing Conference

Join GRF’s Paul Calabrese and the Michigan Association of CPAs for the annual Governmental Accounting & Auditing Conference.

How to Solve Your Client’s Complex Problems Using the Revised Uniform Guidance

1:10 PM – 2:00 PM EST

(Keynote presentation): Whether you are a grants manager overseeing sub-recipients for a state, municipal, or local government, part of a university or hospital, an auditor performing a Single audit, or a recipient of pass-through funds on a Federal grant or cooperative agreement, disputes between the Pass-Through-Entities (PTEs) and their sub-recipients are going to happen. Inevitably, there will be disagreements based on differing interpretations of the revised Uniform Guidance as it applies to the administration of grants and cooperative agreements.  This session will provide an approach for solving problems from the public accountant’s perspective as they consult with their sub-recipient client. However, this method would also work for a grants administrator or auditor in order to support their position with the goal of resolution.

In this session you will:

  • Understand revisions to the Uniform Guidance around PTE’s responsibilities with establishing indirect rates for sub-recipients
  • Learn how to use FAQs to interpret the revised Uniform Guidance in researching complex matters
  • Hear 3 example situations and how those impasses were resolved
  • Discover a consultant’s paradigm for solving complex problems under the revised Uniform Guidance

Your Guide to Subrecipient Monitoring

2:10 PM – 3:00 PM EST

(Breakout session): Guidance for subrecipient monitoring was updated in 2020, securing its position as a critical requirement to ensure pass-through entities (PTE) remain compliant with certain federal programs. Walk away from this session with a clear understanding of the difference between sub-awards and contracts, PTE responsibilities, the role sub-award agreements play in sub-recipient compliance and more.
