About the Webinar: For most grantors and grantees, procurement can be the single most time-consuming administrative task in the lifecycle of grants management. And most grantee agencies rely on a procurement office to know, understand and apply the rules and regulations. However, to be successful administrators, we all need to know the federal guidelines and compliance requirements for procuring goods and services with grant money and how to train our subgrantee agencies on these same rules and regulations. During this webinar, we will discuss the requirements for federal grant procurement, contracting, vendor selection, internal controls and conflicts of interest, as well as some changes to these areas in the new Omni Circular 2 CFR Part 200 which take effect on December 26, 2014.
