Virtual Training

Time & Effort – Compliance vs. Flexibility

June 26, 2019

1:00 pm EST

Course Description:

The time and effort requirements under the Uniform Grant Guidance (UGG) are much less prescriptive than the detailed Personnel Activity Reports and Semi-Annual Certifications required from the prior OMB Circulars. With less requirements under the UGG, nonfederal entities have significant flexibility collecting time and effort documentation. However, even with the expanded flexibility, entities still need to ensure compliance. This webinar will cover the time and effort requirements under the UGG as well as recommendations on how to collect documentation while balancing flexibility with compliance.
