Head Start program grants have numerous requirements as a result of receiving federal funding. Not properly following these requirements can have serious and costly consequences.  Staying in compliance with all of the applicable rules and regulations, however, can be daunting, and the new Supercircular has only made the task even more difficult for federal grantees. From changes relating to time and effort reporting to indirect cost rates and cost allocations and everything between federal grantees are required to incorporate all of the new requirements into their existing business practices and related policies and procedures.  Accomplishing all of this correctly can be a big task, and before you get too far, now is a good time to conduct your own self-audit to make sure that you have implemented the new requirements correctly.  Being proactive is essential in order to minimize of possibility of potential delays and interruptions to program funding, and periodic federal grants self audits can help to minimize this possibility by helping to keep you in compliance.  During this webinar, we will discuss:

  • The components of a compliance program including time and effort reporting, Indirect cost rates and cost allocation,  and procurement requirements;
  • How to implement internal audits and monitor the compliance program;
  • Tips for auditing controls; and
  • Necessary changes to policies and procedures and operational procedures.
