Time And Effort Certifications Under The Uniform Grant Guidance Update

Webinar: ID# 1022918
Recorded CD
About This Course:
Over the past four decades, time and effort reporting under federal grants has been the Achilles Heel of grant managers and project directors.

Single auditors and federal auditors have had a field day on this issue, and hundreds of millions of dollars have been recouped by the 28 federal agencies issuing the grants. OMB finally recognized that part of the problem was the wording of the OMB Circulars, and now the Uniform Grant Guidance (UGG) reflects a dramatic departure of prior law.

This webinar will profile all the changes in the federal guidance, and will emphasize the continuing concerns related to administrative and clerical personnel being reflected through an indirect cost approach.

  • Which Salaries Must Be Treated as Indirect Costs?
  • May Cost Allocation Plans and Substitute Systems Be Used?
  • Who Must Approve the Substitute Systems?
