EDGAR: Part 200 Allowability Rules (including Time and Effort)

August 10, 2016 at 1:00pm Eastern

By: Steven Spillan, Esq.

Course Description – The allowability of federal expenditures is one of the more common, but complex, issues that grant personnel face. On December 26, 2014 the Education Department General Administrative Regulations (EDGAR) were updated to incorporate the requirements of the Uniform Grants Guidance (2 CFR Part 200).  This webinar will provide participants with the knowledge they need to avoid disallowances by ensuring that all federal grant expenditures are consistent with Part 200’s cost principles and selected items of cost.  The course also includes a detailed discussion and practical advice on how to implement time and effort policies and procedures under Part 200’s rules.
