Uniform Grant Guidance and EDGAR Workshop for Programmatic and Business Administrators in LEAs/Charters
All federal education grant funds received by local districts (LEAs) and Charters through the Arizona Department of Education, including State-Administered programs under ESSA, IDEA, AEFLA, Perkins, and School Nutrition are subject to the Uniform Grant Guidance (UGG) and the Education Department General Administrative Regulations (EDGAR). New to navigating these rules? Interested in receiving the latest updates on federal financial, regulatory, and legislative developments? The Arizona Department of Education has asked Michael Brustein and Bonnie Little Graham of the Washington, D.C. law firm, Brustein & Manasevit, PLLC, to lead a workshop that will highlight requirements under the UGG and EDGAR, as well as recent U.S. Education Department interpretations and policies. These regulations impact time and effort certifications, indirect cost reimbursement, timely obligation of funds and carryover, financial management rules, program income, record retention, property/equipment/supplies inventory controls, procurement, monitoring, conflicts, travel policies, and allowable costs. All recipients of federal grant dollars must comply with these rules to avoid audit exposure and to be eligible for available flexibility, such as schoolwide consolidation.
The workshop will be conducted on August 1, 2019, at a downtown Phoenix hotel. Each attendee will be provided a copy of EDGAR, recently updated with new federal guidance. The workshop will start at 10:00 AM and end at 3:30 PM. A lunch break will take place from 12:00 – 1:30 PM. Lunch is on your own – there are a wide variety of restaurants in the area.
