  • Navigating the Revisions to the UG

    Includes a Live Web Event on 12/14/2020 at 2:00 PM (EST)

    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

    Speakers:
    Tolise Dailey, Training Manager, Johns Hopkins University
    David Mayo, Director of Sponsored Research, California Institute of Technology
    David Schultz, Assistant VP, Research Administration and Finance, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute

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

    Includes a Live Web Event on 11/04/2020 at 2:00 PM (EST)

    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. 

    Speakers:
    David Ngo, Associate Provost, New School
    Lisa Mosley, Executive Director, Office of Sponsored Projects, Yale University

  • Foreign Influence Requirements Roundup: Agency by Agency Current Expectations Plus a Sneak Peek at What We Think is Coming

    With the wealth of information constantly coming out (or being promulgated) related to foreign influence issues, concerns – and requirements that agencies need to impose to address those concerns – it can be hard to keep up with what research administrators need to comply with.

    (90 minutes) With the wealth of information constantly coming out (or being promulgated) related to foreign influence issues, concerns – and requirements that agencies need to impose to address those concerns – it can be hard to keep up with what research administrators need to comply with.  This webinar will be a pragmatic snapshot of the national picture, what requirements exist TODAY from various federal agencies related to foreign influence and related national security issues, and what is most likely (but no promises!) heading our way in the coming months.  Some research administrators already deeply embedded in foreign influence issues may not learn anything new; for the rest of us, this will allow an opportunity to “catch up” or confirm the current interpretation of the guidance  as well as having an idea of what requirements or legislation may be bubbling up in this space in the coming months.

  • Compliance and the Uniform Guidance

    The Uniform Guidance is one of the most important regulatory changes implemented in decades.

    (90 minutes) The Uniform Guidance is one of the most important regulatory changes implemented in decades. While its purpose was to reduce administrative burden and safeguard against waste or misuse of funds, compliance remains the primary focus. With new proposed changes on the horizon, IHEs (Institutions of Higher Education) once again prepare to implement policies and procedures in a seemingly never-ending quest for compliance. This session will explore the Uniform Guidance sections on cost principles, internal controls, and audits.

  • Data Security for the Research Administrator

    Protecting research information and systems from unauthorized access, use, disclosure, disruption, modification, or destruction is a critical component to safeguarding research information and preventing financial loss or damage to the university's reputation.

    (90 minutes)  Protecting research information and systems from unauthorized access, use, disclosure, disruption, modification, or destruction is a critical component to safeguarding research information and preventing financial loss or damage to the university's reputation. Protecting confidential information is not only a legal and business requirement, but is also an ethical requirement.

    Due to increased cybersecurity concerns throughout the world, research sponsors are including more stringent requirements for working with restricted data. There is a notable increase in the number of grants and contracts requiring the university to implement specific privacy and security safeguards for data and information systems as mandated by federal (HIPAA, FISMA, NIST, CMMC, FERPA, GLBA, ITAR, Privacy Act), state and/or local law, industry sanctioned (PCI-DSS), university policies (i.e. UF Privacy Office, Security Office) or agreements (i.e. Data Use Agreement, Business Associate Agreement, etc.).

    This session will describe the basis of the requirements and offer best practices in creating compliant environments, with a special emphasis on the Department of Defense Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC).

  • HR Series: Challenging People: Accountability, Difficult People and Situations

    Who are the challenging people in our office? Does our staff consider us the challenging person in our office? Trying to reason with a person whose behavior is difficult can be the most difficult part of our job.

    (90 minutes) Who are the challenging people in our office? Does our staff  consider us the challenging person in our office? Trying to reason with a person whose behavior is difficult can be the most difficult part of our job. How we show up in a conversation can have a big impact on our business relationships and communications.

    When we are having a challenge communicating with someone in our office, it can come from a number of reasons including:

    • The other person’s lack of self-awareness
    • Our lack of self-awareness
    • Different priorities
    • Different communication styles
    • An absence of trust

    We can’t reason with someone who is behaving unreasonably. The good news is there are proven techniques to manage these situations and to manage ourselves to build accountability and trust.

    Our world is experiencing additional stresses and increased remote communication due to COVID-19.  Join us as we take the time to support our business relationships and communications.
