Overview: We understand USG and USAID grant regulations are complex and sometimes confusing. Our clients ask us all the time—how can I comply with the regulations and still implement the program in a timely and effective way? Our course is designed to provide your organization the skills and approaches to regulation compliance needed throughout the life of the grant or cooperative agreement. Whether its a new proposal, award, close-out or audit, our team can provide practical advise on grants, finance, human resources and program reporting, while enhancing overall program implementation. With the Office of Management and Budget’s nitiative to standardize USG grant procedures in December 2014, we can help you prepare for the new regulations.
