Time and Effort Reporting: Compliance for Your Largest Expense Category

Webinar • Tuesday, August 22, 2023 • 2:00-3:00 p.m. ET

Like all aspects of the Uniform Guidance, OMB attempted to ease the administrative burden and place greater emphasis on sound internal controls concerning time and effort reporting. The new rules take a drastic turn away from rigid requirements for six-month certifications and monthly personnel activity reports. This leaves considerable ambiguity about exactly how Federal award recipients and subrecipients should document their personnel costs. What is the best way to handle accuracy and documentation so that your time records don’t result in disallowed costs? 

This session will help you understand the cost principle behind time and effort reporting, generating quality supporting documentation, and what’s expected under Uniform Guidance. You’ll learn about what audit procedures you are likely to face and how organizations that have received findings could have avoided trouble.

Join leading grant professionals Ben Sedelmeier and Levi Zielinski for this one-hour webinar where they will provide expert guidance on how to respond to the new flexibility—and ambiguity—with high-performance procedures that help keep personnel costs from being questioned and disallowed.
