The OMB Uniform Guidance: How New Government Grants Reforms Can Benefit Your Organization
Cost: Center Members ONLY - FREE (Contact the Center for recording)
Did you know that the federal government now mandates that nonprofits must be reimbursed for some or all of their indirect costs (e.g., lights, rent, administrative support, etc.) when performing services for governments at all levels – local, state, federal – when federal funds are being used (either directly or via state or local ‘pass through’ agencies)?
In December 2014, the U.S. Office of Management and Budget (OMB) published the OMB Uniform Guidance, sweeping new rules that make significant changes to procurement, auditing and reporting systems for not only federal grants and contracts, but any state and local grants or contracts that pass through federal funds as well.
The Center for Non-Profits and the National Council of Nonprofits presented an introductory webinar to provide the most recent information about these changes and how your organization can start taking advantage of them.
The session featured National Council of Nonprofits' Policy Specialist Beth Bowsky and Vice President for Public Policy David L. Thompson, two of the nation's top experts and leading non-profit advocacy voices on the issue.
Center members, order this special insider's look at what the new OMB Uniform Guidance will mean for your organization's government contracting work, and how we can work together to build on the promise of the new guidance.
