During this special two-day Boston-area conference, you will learn about the Super Circular’s key requirements and recent changes, challenges in implementing the Uniform Guidance, and related developments in Federal grants management for 2017 and beyond.  The topics that you will explore include the following:

  • Key requirements under the Super Circular (Uniform Grants Guidance) and amendments;
  • Impact of recent court and administrative decisions on Federal grants management;
  • Recent legislation addressing issues in grants management;
  • Administrative requirements under the Super Circular and challenges in implementation;

  • Time and effort documentation;
  • Single Audit Act (Subpart F) audits, reporting, and resolution under the Uniform Guidance; and,
  • Revisions to the Annual Audit Compliance Supplement.

In addition to discussing these and other important grants management topics, the OMB Super Circular Training and Grants Management Update 2017 will discuss the future of the Uniform Grants Guidance and the direction of grants management under the new administration.  Throughout both days of the conference, you will also have multiple opportunities get answers to your Super Circular and grants management questions.

OMB Super Circular Training in Phoenix Area

December 6 and 7, 2016
Embassy Suites Phoenix Scottsdale
Scottsdale, AZ (Phoenix Area)

The OMB Uniform Grants Guidance (better known as the Super Circular) will soon turn two and, like most two-year-olds, continues to grow and change.  Make sure that you know the key requirements under the OMB Super Circular and stay up-to-date on the latest developments and changes affecting Federal grants management by attending our 2-day Federal Grants Symposium: OMB Super Circular Training and Grants Management Update in Scottsdale (the greater Phoenix area).

Effectively managing grants requires having the right knowledge.  Grants management rules continue to evolve both under the Office of Management and Budget’s Uniform Grants Guidance (more commonly referred to as the Super Circular) and in general.  Since the Super Circular was issued in 2014, the OMB has made amendments (with the latest taking effect earlier this year); significant challenges in implementing the Uniform Grants Guidance have been found; new audit requirements have taken effect (with accompanying changes to the guidance in the Audit Compliance Supplement); and legal and legislative actions have continued to affect grants management.  Staying in compliance with grants requirements means having a solid understanding of the fundamentals under the Super Circular and keeping up-to-date with these and other recent developments. 

Attending this special, two-day event in Scottsdale will help you stay current and compliant while learning about the Super Circular’s key requirements as well as recent changes and related grants management developments.  The conference will cover not just recent developments but will also review the key rules governing grants management under the Super Circular, including administrative requirements, cost principles, procurement and property management, and audit standards.  The Federal Grants Symposium: OMB Super Circular Training and Grants Management Update will benefit both experienced grants professionals and those new to the world of Federal grants and will offer important information for all types of grant-funded organizations (grantees, subrecipients, and pass-throughs).

New Orleans, LA
Exclusive, Two-Day Small-Group Training Event

Learn the key requirements under the OMB Super Circular and stay up-to-date on the latest developments and changes affecting Federal grants management at our new, 2-day conference in New Orleans.

To effectively manage Federal grants, you need to know the key requirements of the OMB’s Uniform Guidance (better known as the Super Circular) as well as the latest changes to the Guidance and related developments in grants management.

 The training will cover the major requirements of the Super Circular for those new to grants management or wanting a refresher, but the conference goes beyond the fundamentals to explain recent changes and related developments for both new and experienced grants professionals.  Although the Uniform Guidance (better known as the Super Circular) is less than two years old, the OMB has already made amendments, including changes taking effect for 2016.  In addition to these changes, new concepts from the Super Circular are starting to influence Federal grants management (including subawards) and new challenges in implementing the Super Circular continue to be found.  These include changes to the audit requirements under the Super Circular and a slow make-over of the Audit Compliance Supplement, both of which are just starting to be felt.  Furthermore, recent court and administrative decisions and legislation are affecting grants management for both grantees and subrecipients.  As the Super Circular and other grants management requirements continue to evolve and grow, recipients (including pass-throughs) and subrecipients need to stay up-to-date. At the conference, you will learn not just the major requirements and recent changes in the Super Circular but also current developments in grants management and how these developments affect grant-funded organizations.
