        • 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

          Speakers:
          Tolise Dailey, Training Manager, Johns Hopkins University
          David Mayo, Director of Sponsored Research, California Institute of Technology

        • 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.

          David Ngo, Associate Provost, New School

        • 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.

          Prerequisites: None

          Speakers:
          Jim Luther, Associate Vice President Finance & Compliance Officer, Duke University

          1. Participants will be able to perform a “self-check” of proposal and award foreign influence requirements to make sure their institutions have addressed agency expectations (or know what they need to work on)
          2. Participants will know where new requirements are most likely to emerge (not counting surprises!) and be able to watch for developments in these areas.

        • 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.
