Back to Basics: Time & Effort Requirements

February 12, 2020

1:00 pm EST

Course Description:

For most federal programs, the single largest category of expenditures is salaries and wages. This means the biggest risk most grantees and subrecipients face relates to how federal funds are used to pay employees. The only way to mitigate this risk is with documentation supporting these salary and wage costs in line with the requirements of the Uniform Grant Guidance.  This webinar will discuss the minimum rules to maintain time & effort documentations, as well as what flexibility exists in how such documents are maintained.  In addition to discussing the specific rules, this webinar will also feature examples of compliant time distribution records and best practices for ensuring such records are supported by a system of internal controls ensuring costs are accurate and allocable to the federal program.
