Let’s face it, policies, procedures and processes are not something that members of your organization are clamoring to adopt. They are actually the things most people want to avoid, sidestep or dismiss. However, for grant managers, policies and procedures are the lifeline that determine the probability of organizational compliance. Grant professionals know that policies and procedures directly impact your ability to effectively manage grant projects. Too often, grantees do not have a comprehensive understanding of what policies are required under the uniform guidance, and how to create policies and procedures that minimize risk and enhance chances of success. More often, grant professionals struggle with the challenges of implementing procedures that make sense to the end user to reduce the likelihood that they are avoided, sidestepped or dismissed.
This full-day session is designed for those who are responsible for grants oversight, as well as practitioners who are charged with implementation of grant management policies and procedures. Join us at this one-day boot camp to get your organization compliant and up-to-speed!
Don’t miss this must-attend workshop where you will:
✓ Learn the absolute “must-have” policies required under the uniform guidance and gain an understanding of policies and procedures as they relate to the grant lifecycle.
✓ Determine how processes and procedures can be enhanced to make them meaningful to the end-user, to increase the odds of their effective application to grant projects.
✓ Explore how internal politics often present roadblocks to implementing new procedures at their organizations and how to effectively proceed with change.
✓ Learn the consequences of poor and weak internal controls and how they contribute to waste, fraud, and abuse of federal funds.
✓ Examine case studies to determine the effectiveness of policies and procedures and recommend possible solutions for improvements.
✓ Have the opportunity to assess the strengths and weaknesses of your entity’s policies and procedures and whether they contribute to grant progress or hinder outcomes.
With your registration, you will receive:
✓ A one-day hands-on, expert-led workshop
