As a Grant Professional, winning the grant is great- but then what? Financial Management of all grants, both large and small, is extremely important. Do you need to be a CPA? No! Do you need to know every single ruling in the Office of Management and Budget? No! Do you need to spend thousands of dollars on software packages? No! However, you better know where to find your answers on what is allowable and what isn’t, you should definitely know about your Project Manager, and you should know your way around an Excel spreadsheet.
The way to success is to work closely with your Finance and Payroll Departments, as well as your Project Personnel in order to close out with zero dollars unspent and pass those audits without any findings. It takes planning and teamwork – and tremendous organizational skills.
In this session, expert speaker Cyndi MacKenzie, GPC, will explain you how to manage grants effectively, keeping the financial perspective in mind. Get to know practical tips, advice and expertise that will save you time and frustration. You will be able to manage the financial side effectively, and also learn how to be organized, and how to treat grants with ethics, among other things.
