Get answers to your questions about the OMB’s Uniform Grants Guidance (better known as the “Omnicircular” or “Super Circular”) during the Eastern Grants Forum. The Uniform Grants Guidance has detailed requirements, including cost principles, that govern the management and spending of grant funds. Failure to follow these rules can lead to costly disallowances and repayment of funds and even loss of your grants. However, these requirements can be difficult to navigate, and the Super Circular has continued to evolve with additional changes since the so-called “final” version was issued. By attending this special “Super Circular Training & Cost Principles Deep Dive” edition of the 2018 Eastern Grants Forum on August 16 and 17, though, you will learn everything that you need to know about the Super Circular’s administrative rules, audit standards, procurement rules, and cost principles, to comply with current grants requirements.

Over two full days, you will learn about the Super Circular’s administrative requirements and audit standards as well as taking a “deep dive” into the cost principles and procurement standards. Among the topics in detail will be: administrative requirements; the unified cost principles; general rules for cost allowability; direct and indirect cost fundamentals and negotiation of indirect cost rates; procurement rules and the relationship to the cost principles; equipment and other capital expenditures; time and effort reporting and fringe benefit rules; employee welfare costs (including changes to “employee morale”); prior written approval requirements; recent developments in grants management; audits under the Uniform Grants Guidance; fighting grant fraud; and, answers to frequently asked questions about grants management.

There will also be numerous question and answer sessions throughout the Eastern Grants Forum 2018 to allow you to ask and get answers to your individual questions about the Uniform Grants Guidance.
