What Future OMB Grant Trainings Would You Like?

Posted by Timothy Tiernan on Aug 10, 2015 7:00:00 AM

We want to provide you the best possible grants management training—training constructed around your questions and issues as your team begins to operationalize the OMB Uniform Guidance. So we have set up a survey to collect input from grant managers and other grant administrators to focus future trainings based on your questions and suggestions.

You can take our survey by clicking here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/OMB-Trainings.

In fact, if you're planning on giving us your feedback, it's best to do so now and read the rest of this post later. (We list some other survey takers' common ideas and questions below and don't want to influence you!)

Many of those who attended the OMB Uniform Guidance training in March had questions about the implications of the new guidance as it relates to their specific program and forms. Our Client Advisory Board had these questions, for instance:

  1. How did federal agencies incorporate the Uniform Guidance changes into their grant program standard application forms, agreements, and other documents?
  2. How have DATA Act requirements been incorporated into current forms?
  3. Will reporting be like that for the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA), with separate and above the quarterly reporting that is required by the grantor?

In addition, the board suggested there be a crosswalk of the form changes to accompany the language revision by agency.

So, what kind of OMB training are you looking for? What issues is your department or organization facing? Click the button below to take the survey, or leave a comment below:
