With the new fiscal year starting in July for most state and local governments, many rolling grant programs and re-solicited grant opportunities will fall under the new administrative, cost principle, and reporting guidelines of the Uniform Guidance. Operationalizing the new guidance will require a solid understanding of the changes and their intent. It's critical that collaboration and information sharing improve and that local governments find more ways to share their training resources and best practices.
With this in mind, eCivis is pleased to share Uniform Guidance training from earlier this year that was hosted by the City of Los Angeles and provided by Victoria Collin, senior policy analyst for the White House Office of Management and Budget (OMB). Implementation of this guidance will help reduce administrative burden and waste, fraud, and abuse for the approximately $600 billion per year awarded in federal financial assistance. This should result in more effective use of federal grant dollars, more entities being able to compete for and win awards, and ultimately a stronger framework to provide key services to residents and support the basic research that underpins the U.S. economy.1
The training is divided into topical segments to help you follow along. If you have specific implementation questions, please refer to the FAQ.
