Grants Management in Today's Environment
AGA, in conjunction with the National Association of State Auditors,
Comptrollers and Treasurers (NASACT) and the Association of Local
Government Auditors (ALGA) is pleased to announce a new and increasingly
important topic to our audio conference schedule--grants management.
Grants administrators operate in a dynamic and complex environment. They
face an ever-growing list of compliance issues, closely scrutinized by
internal and external auditors. The American Reinvestment and Recovery
Act has raised the "compliance bar" with additional reporting and
accountability requirements. State and local governments,
not-for-profits and education and research grant administrators are
struggling to untangle, interpret and manage the growing list of
requirements that comes with the flow of federal dollars. The presenters
will cover some of the recent changes related to grant regulations and
begin to sort out the new reporting and compliance requirements related
to grant funding. These requirements are not only important for grant
administrators to know, but for auditors, accountants and other
financial accountability professionals to understand.
This audio conference will be unique in that more time will be devoted
to answering questions regarding Recovery Act reporting requirements.
The presenters will ask and answer many of the concerns already raised
in various circles. But as participants, you will have the opportunity
to e-mail your questions before and during the audio conference. Please
send your questions to we10 at txstate.edu and cc. joseph.kull at us.pwc.com
and we will attempt to include them in the program.
To share their practical experiences in grants management are Thomas A.
Cooley, MS, Chief Financial Officer and Director, Office of Budget,
Finance and Awards, National Science Foundation; W. Scott Erwin, CGFM,
CRA, Director, Office of Sponsored Programs, Texas State University -
San Marcos; and Joseph L. Kull, CGFM, CPA, Director,
Please join us for two hours of lively discussion about this important
and timely topic. In addition to the speakers' commentary, there will be
approximately 40 minutes for Q & A so that the participants can ask the
speakers questions and share their experiences.
