Webinar - Grants Management - The Focus on Internal Controls & Compliance

Internal controls over grant activities are often undocumented or misunderstood. The management of complexities and risks associated with the acceptance of federal is important to provide assurance to management and oversight bodies that the funds are properly spent. Internal controls provide the backbone for accountants, auditors and grant managers to ensure that grant funds are spent in accordance with requirements and to help reduce the risk of improper payments and fraud. Internal controls over activities of subrecipients are also essential to employ at the recipient level, especially if there are small subrecipients. This webinar will focus on understanding internal controls that need to be in place to help organizations comply with financial and compliance requirements surrounding grants. In addition, the session will identify ways to use the GAO Green Book, the OMB Compliance Supplement and other tools as guides to better understand and implement internal controls.
