Course Description

Uniform Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles, and Audit Requirements for Federal Awards have been implemented to reduce administrative burden and increase oversight. Organizations need to understand how these regulations affect their processes. By emphasizing the actions mandated by the uniform guidance and offering strategies and recommendations on improving outcomes through better communication and comprehension, this course will serve as a reminder of the compliance requirements for grants management. Professionals can benefit from reviewing the administrative and cost principles sections of 2 CFR Part 200. After completing this session, they will be able to identify regulatory changes, determine necessary actions, and utilize practical tools to update policies and procedures.
