Grant Management Uniform Guidance: D +4 Weeks

The new federal grant management Uniform Guidance (2 CFR Part 200) went into effect on December 26, 2014. Are your organization’s policies, procedures and systems aligned with the new regulations?

This change impacts all non-federal organizations.

The Grant Doctors offers two options to help you prepare for the transition:

  1. Have us perform a Grant Management Assessment to review your organization’s systems and to make recommendations for improvement if necessary.
  2. DIY: Use our Federal Grant Management Assessment tool to perform your own internal analysis. Our assessment covers 110 standards in the Uniform Guidance (i.e., administrative requirements, cost principles and audit requirements) and internal controls guidelines; and provides ample space to cite your current practices and to make notes regarding findings, action items and next steps. And, because the tool is a .pdf form, you can save your responses and re-use the assessment anytime. Click here to purchase and download the assessment tool. Price: $350.

We’re your partner. Let us know how we can help. Always feel free to contact us.
