Legal Quick Hit: "Establishing a Compliance System to Address the New Ethics Requirements: Common Pitfalls for Nonprofit Federal Grant Recipients" for the Association of Corporate Counsel's Nonprofit Organizations Committee

This event has already occurred.

Seasoned nonprofit federal grant and contract practitioners from the Venable law firm will discuss – and answer your questions about – how to identify and manage some of the greatest areas of risk facing nonprofit grantees of federal funds. The rules of the road for federal grantees have changed significantly, with grantees now subject to many of the stricter rules previously applicable only to federal contractors. This is posing major challenges for nonprofit federal grant recipients. This Legal Quick Hit will highlight notable recent activity by suspension and debarment officials involving federal grantees, the increasing need for federal grantees to establish a culture of ethical compliance in their organizations, and what nonprofits can do to get there. Of course, all of this is being asked of grantees with the same or less federal funding. This Legal Quick Hit will provide tips and insight into efficiently and effectively instituting a culture of ethics and compliance within your nonprofit organization.
