Atlantic Information Services, Inc. (AIS) - November 12, 2015 - Washington, DC

Atlantic Information Services, Inc. (AIS) and Federal Fund Management Advisor are pleased to announce the release of A Practical Guide to Federal Grants Management — From Solicitation Through Audit, a new, comprehensive resource for organizations that receive federal financial assistance. The “how-to-do-it” guide is organized to track the life of a federal grant — from solicitation through audit — and includes proven strategies and new initiatives from OMB’s historic 2014 uniform guidance, which changed the rules for time and effort reporting, procurement under grants, direct charging certain costs, single audit preparations, subrecipient monitoring and much more.

Spanning more than 500 pages, A Practical Guide to Federal Grants Management is designed to help grants management teams:

  • Understand the differences between direct and indirect costs
  • Make the subrecipient vs. contractor determination
  • Realize the full impact of OMB’s emphasis on internal controls
  • Understand which familiar elements of time and effort reporting have been retained in the uniform guidance and which are new
  • Know the nuances of requirements for subrecipient assessment and monitoring
  • Understand contract clauses in agreements for procurement under grants
  • Apply the general tests of allowability
  • Understand special issues confronting pass-through entities contracting with foreign organizations
  • Know which clauses flow down when crafting a subaward
  • Understand what is meant by a 10% de minimis indirect cost rate
  • Audit the vulnerabilities in your grants management operation
  • Understand what is meant by audit “resolution”
