    (90 minutes) Do you use Excel to analyze and report data? If so, you’ve probably asked yourself, "Why does this take so long? Is there a better way?"

In this intermediate-level session, you will learn how to use tables, formulas, pivot tables, and conditional formatting that will help you navigate your path to success. This is a 90-minute session and participants should bring their own laptop to the workshop. Excel templates will be provided on the day of the workshop for participants to use as they follow-along. Adequate time will be provided for participants to personalize the templates for use back home.

      • Navigating “It Depends…”

        Includes a Live Web Event on 04/08/2021 at 2:00 PM (EDT)

        Join this webinar to discuss strategies for coping with the vagaries of our profession.

        (90 minutes) Everyone loves flexibility, nuance, and individuality until it comes time to make a decision. Research administrators spend a lot of time navigating the gray, interpreting vague regulations, accommodating non-standard situations, and considering special requests for exceptions. In this webinar, we’re going to discuss strategies for coping with the vagaries of our profession. We’ll consider why different institutions establish different rules, why central offices sometimes make “inconsistent” decisions, and why project-specific needs often confound our best efforts to routinize. Registrants will be polled prior to the webinar to identify any specific issues that they would like to discuss.

            • Navigating the Revisions to the UG

              Join us for a discussion of key changes to the Uniform Guidance reflected in the 2020 revision, including updated definitions, new requirements as well as modifications to existing requirements.

              (90 minutes) In 2013 the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) partnered with the Council on Financial Assistance Reform (COFAR) to revise and streamline existing financial assistance regulations.  The result was the Uniform Guidance (2 CFR 200), which became effective on December 26, 2014.  In many ways, the UG changed how recipients approached the management of federal financial assistance.  The COFAR was tasked with providing clarifications in response to questions posed by the recipient community; these clarifications were issued in the form of Frequently Asked Questions.  Now, in 2020, OMB has revised the Uniform Guidance to convey further clarification and guidance.

              In this webinar we will discuss key changes reflected in the 2020 revision, including updated definitions, new requirements as well as modifications to existing requirements.  Our discussion will include the government’s purpose in making a particular change, as well as the potential impact to institutions.  Please join us for an informative session reviewing one of the key documents impacting sponsored awards at our institutions. 

              Prerequisites: Knowledge of the Uniform Guidance

            • Compensation Compliance Under Uniform Guidance – Where Are We Now?

              2 CFR 200 went into effect on December 26, 2014 removing the long-standing examples of how to meet the after-the-fact review requirement to ensure salary estimates and interim charges are reasonable for the work that was performed.

              (90 minutes) 2 CFR 200 went into effect on December 26, 2014 removing the long-standing examples of how to meet the after-the-fact review requirement to ensure salary estimates and interim charges are reasonable for the work that was performed.  Of those previous examples included in A-21, Effort Reporting was the methodology that was implemented by most institutions despite the significant drawbacks.  Even with the publication of the UG and the Federal Demonstration Partnership (FDP) Payroll Certification pilots, many institutions hesitated to move away from Effort Reporting to a more simplified method to meet the after-the-fact review requirement.  This webinar will focus on the compensation requirements outlined in the Uniform Guidance 200.430, provide an overview of the Internal Control Framework for compensation compliance, highlight schools who have made the transition to an alternative to effort reporting, and provide an update on any UG changes that may impact this federal requirement. 

              Prerequisites: Familiarity with the 2 CFR 200 Uniform Guidance Desk Reference is recommended.

              3. Elements of an Internal Control Framework for compensation compliance
