The decision to pursue U.S. government funding requires careful consideration of how to balance the potential risks that come with the guaranteed rewards of federal grants and contracts. Any nonprofit that that receives federal funds—either directly or from a pass-through entity—is legally obligated to comply with a range of federal policies, regulations, and Congressional mandates. These obligations are not limited to federally-funded activities; they affect an organization’s overall business and financial management practices and must be consistently applied and well documented. This session will review the five essential areas of federal compliance risk:

• Cost Principles of OMB Circulars A-122, A-21, and A-87
• Audit Requirements of OMB Circular A-133 and related Compliance Supplements
• Uniform Requirements of OMB Circular A-110
• Standard Assurances
• Federal Acquisition Regulations

This session will also present an integrated compliance model to help participants manage their organization’s federal compliance risks and avoid common audit findings. Participants will learn strategies to adapt the model, including how to develop policies, adopt standard procedures, and ensure consistent practice.
