Working with the federal government can seem intimidating, and it can be. However, there are several simple steps a nonprofit can take to better understand its obligations and avoid allegations of non-compliance, or worse yet, fraud. Join us for a discussion of ten of the most common pitfalls that nonprofits experience when serving as a grant recipient or contractor on behalf of the federal government. Some of these pitfalls include:

  • Not knowing the terms and conditions of a grant or contract;
  • Misunderstanding the authority and responsibilities of the various contracting officers and their respective representatives;
  • Not taking advantage of the advice and input of the government; and
  • Keeping accurate and complete records.

In addition to discussing these and other pitfalls, we will offer best-practice tips for protecting your organization and its reputation, keeping it out of trouble, and avoiding the issues and problems that have plauged others in the past.
