Upcoming Live Events
Collapse Time and Effort Reporting with the Supercircular
The Supercircular (OMB's Uniform Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles, and Audit Requirements for Federal Grants) makes significant reforms to time and effort reporting requirements. These changes are intended to strengthen the requirements for internal controls over salaries and wages and provide some flexibility to grantees. The Supercircular requires non-Federal entities to comply with a new framework of internal control objectives rather than the previously-required prescribed personnel activity reports or periodic certifications. 

Join Ted Waters, one of the nation's leading federal grants attorneys and managing partner of Feldesman Tucker Leifer Fidell LLP, for this webinar – the first in our in-depth Supercircular series – to understand the legal consequences of the Supercircular’s changes and bring your organization into compliance.

By the end of this webinar, participants will be able to:
  • Identify changes to time and effort requirements that will have an impact on your organization;
  • Understand the Supercircular's new internal control framework; and
  • Determine necessary alterations to policies, procedures, and operational systems.  

Who Should Attend: CEOs/Executive Directors, Fiscal Staff, other Senior Management, though all are welcome.

We recommend that your organization share a webinar registration and gather to participate in the webinar together. Should your organization not be able to come together, you may register for additional lines at the discounted rate of $49 per line.

Collapse Procurement and Conflicts of Interest Under the Supercircular
While many of the main aspects of conducting proper procurements, such as maximizing competition, remain the same as what is currently in existence, the Supercircular (OMB's Uniform Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles, and Audit Requirements for Federal Grants) includes some new and different elements. The Supercircular's changes surrounding procurements and conflicts of interest include new fixed-price agreements, limitations on sole source procurements, requirements for written standards of conduct covering conflicts of interest, a new micro-purchase threshold, and clarifies the simplified acquisition threshold.

  • Review the processes involved in procuring goods and services with federal funds;

Collapse What Does the Supercircular Say? Subrecipient Arrangements and Related Issues
Big changes have arrived for all federal grantees! With OMB's recent release of the Uniform Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles, and Audit Requirements for Federal Grants (the "Supercircular" or "Omnicircular"), there are significant modifications to the rules that govern how you administer and manage all federal grants. Subrecipient arrangements have historically been fraught with confusion. The Supercircular clarifies and significantly changes these arrangements. 

Join Ted Waters, one of the nation’s leading federal grants attorneys and managing partner of Feldesman Tucker Leifer Fidell LLP, for the third webinar in our in-depth Supercircular series to understand the nuances of the Supercircular and identify where changes will be required that affect your organization legally and operationally. 

By the end of this webinar, participants will be able to:
  • Determine the factors to consider when deciding whether a good or service provided to your organization should be through a subrecipient relationship or vendor procurement;
  • Identify changes to requirements for subrecipients that will have an impact on your organization; and
  • Understand what your monitoring obligations are as a grantee.

Who Should Attend: CEOs/Executive Directors, Fiscal Staff, other Senior Management, though all are welcome.

We recommend that your organization share a webinar registration and gather to participate in the webinar together. Should your organization not be able to come together, you may register for additional lines at the discounted rate of $49 per line.

Collapse Allocating Costs and Obtaining Indirect Cost Rates with the Supercircular
With the myriad funding sources that programs juggle, following the federal rules for cost allocation and dealing with indirect cost rates carefully and appropriately has never been more important. The Supercircular changes how non-Federal entities can obtain indirect cost rates for Federal awards, including requiring recognition in most cases by other Federal agencies and states and other pass-through entities of a previously negotiated indirect cost rate with another Federal agency and allowing a one-time extension of a Federally-approved negotiated indirect cost rate.  

Join Ted Waters, one of the nation's leading federal grants attorneys and managing partner of Feldesman Tucker Leifer Fidell LLP, for the final webinar in our in-depth Supercircular series to understand the nuances of the Supercircular and identify where changes will be required that affect your organization legally and operationally. 

By the end of this webinar, participants will be able to:
  • Identify changes to cost allocation and indirect cost rate requirements which will have an impact on your organization;
  • Improve how your organization allocates costs; and
  • Understand necessary alterations to policies, procedures, and operational systems under the Supercircular.

Who Should Attend: CEOs/Executive Directors, Fiscal Staff, other Senior Management, though all are welcome.
