Webinar



When federal funding flows down to states and local governments, so do federal requirements for maintaining proper oversight of subgrantees and contractors.

Unfortunately, all-too-many state and local agency grantees still follow old rules. They have missed (or misunderstood) the host of changes Uniform Guidance has made in what must—and must not—be done. Without understanding what now constitutes proper oversight of subrecipients, agencies risk violating requirements every time federal grant funds are used to procure goods and services.

Here's how to make sure you're in step with the current requirements.

In this 90-minute webinar, attorneys from Venable's Government Contracts Group — Dismas Locaria and Melanie Jones Totman—explain critical changes in the today's regulatory environment. From procurement to administration, you will explore key differences the Uniform Guidance has made in the responsibilities of states and local governments.

Avoid violating requirements you may not even know exist. Step by step, these compliance experts walk you through how Uniform Guidance has changed key aspects of grant funding. You will also examine where—and how—new requirements apply when funds are passed down to subgrantees and contractors. Plus, you will have the chance to ask your own questions during the Q&A portion of the webinar.

Reserve your space now to make sure you’re completely up to date with current requirements affecting grant funding for state and local governments, including:
  • The basics you must know about the current requirements that now apply to federal grants and cooperative agreements
  • Differences between past requirements and what’s required under the Uniform Guidance
  • How to oversee the subgranting of federal funds to grantees or contractors
  • Current requirements for procuring goods and services with government funds
  • Tips for implementing an effective and compliant program for administering federal grant funds

Remember, there have been a host of regulatory changes over the past few years. Don't risk missing—or misunderstanding—even one of those new requirements. Take this opportunity to get expert guidance for staying on the right side of Uniform Grant guidance.
