Compensation Compliance Under Uniform Guidance – Where Are We Now?

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

(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.

We recommend testing your browser as soon as possible in case you need to contact your IT department for help.
  • It is recommended that you use a PC or MAC with an updated Internet Browser.
  • Make sure you have pop-ups blockers disabled in your Internet browser settings.
  • Make sure that your internet browser is Active X enabled.
  • Wifi is not recommended. The problem with WiFi is signal strength can vary causing bandwidth to increase or decrease.
  • We recommend a wired connection. A wired connection gives a consistent signal and consistent bandwidth. A wired connection provides a better experience.
  • It's better for organizations with low bandwidth to only have the webinar running on 1 computer in a conference room than having 10 individual people running the session on 10 computers at their desks.
  • Audio (sound) is projected through your computer speakers. Be sure your computer is equipped with speakers so you can hear the presenters.
