Description

Course Description:

To engage tribal leaders, managers and directors in the discussion of generally acceptable methods and legal requirements of managing a grant. This training will discuss methods to plan and strategize for effective grant management and focus on the OMB Super Circular 2 CFR 200 including accepted financial, managerial and accounting principles. It will explain how effective grant management results in less confusion throughout the grant cycle, lessens the chances of having to return funds and increases future opportunities for funding in the future.

Course Objectives:

  1. Gain an understanding of why careful planning and strategies are necessary for an effective grant management process (meaning how to avoid major issues from inception to close of the grant award); and
  2. Learn how standards of generally accepted financial, managerial, accounting and cost principles are applied to grants covered by OMB “Super Circular” 2 CFR Part 200, federal regulations and the awarding agency; and
  3. How to recognize the parties involved in the grant award and all the roles and responsibilities of everyone; and
  4. See how practicing auditing techniques of grant funded programs can assist in effective grant management; and
  5. Share knowledge, resources and information of best practices to build capacity within the tribal grant communities.
