eCivis, the nation’s leading cloud-based grants management software system, announced that two of its long-time clients will host trainings from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) on the new Uniform Guidance affecting prime and sub-recipients of federal grants. The Cities of Los Angeles and Houston will host the sessions, set for March 11 and March 13, respectively.
The grant guidance sessions will provide an overview of the Uniform Guidance and a summary of what has changed. Victoria Collin, Senior Policy Analyst at the OMB, will lead the session, which will address the impact of the Uniform Guidance on the research administrator, implications for indirect costs, and outline existing and pending changes.
It is imperative for any cities receiving more than $750,000 in federal grant awards to understand the new federal reporting regulations, and more importantly remain compliant with the guidelines to remain eligible for these federal awards.
“This training is a unique and affordable opportunity for organizations dealing with federal grants or contracts to engage with the OMB directly and get answers to their questions,” said eCivis CEO James Ha. “The Cities of Los Angeles and Houston were gracious enough to provide a venue to bring this important, expert training to key areas in the U.S. I attended Collin’s training this past November at the Maryland Governors Grants Conference, and she did an exceptional job of educating and engaging attendees on the new grant guidance.”
The City of Los Angeles is expecting close to 300 participants ranging from city staff to federal grant administrators. There is a nominal fee of $25 per person. For more information on attending the session, please click here.
