Uniform Guidance 2017: What You Need to Know

There were several important discussions last year  about the Uniform Guidance (2 CFR 200) and its impact to federal grant recipients. These discussions took place in trainings across the country. I’ve compiled those trainings for you  in this post  to access and share with others.  Best of all, they're free.  Keep  checking the eCivis blog throughout the year for more training and  resources.

They began working on the contractor agreements for their vendors, and realized that each agency interpreted 2 CFR 200 (Uniform Grant Guidance or UGG) subaward vs. subrecipient vs. subcontractor terminology very differently. This not only is confusing from an operations standpoint, but can have immediate implications from a transparency perspective if the application is not standardized across the board. Let’s start out with some definitions.

What Future OMB Grant Trainings Would You Like?

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!)
