Training

In order to strengthen Federal grant management, OMB streamlined the Federal Government’s guidance on Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles, and Audit Requirements for Federal awards by creating the Omni Circular. This guidance is effective for awards issued after December 26, 2014, and all recipients of awards in 2015 and on should be familiar with the new guidance. The following links present a webinar training on the new guidance and include topics such as the guidance background, effective dates, notable changes, cost principles, and audit requirements. The training is split into two parts, each about one hour in length. For questions regarding the content, award recipients are advised to reach out to the OVW Grants Financial Management Division at 888-514-8556 or via email at OVW.GFMD@usdoj.gov.
