Financial Compliance: Cost Transfers: Minimizing the Need, Monitoring the Process and Managing the Risk
(90 minutes) Cost transfers have come under high scrutiny in recent audits. While the simplest suggestion is to prevent them altogether, in many cases they are unavoidable. This webinar will explore the federal requirements surrounding cost transfers and examine how two different institutions have implemented policies to monitor compliance and mitigate the risk associated with these types of transactions. We will discuss ways to ensure all cost transfers are appropriate, timely, and most importantly, sufficiently documented.
