Sub-Recipient Monitoring: Filling in the Gaps in the Uniform Guidance

This webinar is hosted by Thompson Grants.

Pass-Through Entities (PTEs) must monitor subrecipients’ programs and finances. This creates a host of responsibilities. The additional challenge is that Uniform Guidance devotes only two sections to subrecipient. PTEs need far more practical guidance for meeting all these responsibilities.

This upcoming webinar fills the gap with best practices and risk-based tools for simplifying subrecipient monitoring—and protecting compliance. In this 90-minute webinar, Uniform Guidance expert Paul Calabrese presents practical steps PTEs can take to comply with subrecipient monitoring requirements.

Ensure program and financial compliance. Sharpen up on the basics of performance-based payments, including pros and cons of using them via cost rates in place of cost-reimbursement sub-awards. Learn best practices and today’s best risk-based monitoring tools. Plus, ask your own questions.

Reserve your space now for expert practical guidance for complying with your responsibilities, including:

  • The difference between sub-awards and contracts
  • Using sub-award agreements to ensure subrecipient compliance
  • The scope of PTE responsibilities
  • Processes to ensure subrecipients follow up with action plans to correct audit deficiencies
  • A risk-matrix tool for assessing risk to select which subrecipients to test
  • A self-assessment survey that feeds into the risk assessment for the level of testing
  • Basics of performance-based payments

This webinar is of value to public accountants, consultants and awardees of federal grants and cooperative agreements. Attendees who will benefit most include:

  • Grant administrators
  • Principal investigators
  • Grant program managers
  • Finance and accounting professionals
