Event Description

Learn the Dos and Don’ts of Managing Grants Like a Pro

As a grant professional, you must consider the risks of applying for a grant long before the award is applied for. You need to be sure that all the key stakeholders—such as finance, HR, IT, administrators, program managers, and legal counsel—fully understand the liability and consequences of accepting and managing grants. Your nonprofit will no doubt benefit greatly from federal, state, foundation, and local grant resources. But you must know how to protect yourself appropriately to avoid being labeled as “high risk”, and therefore ineligible for future funding.

Learn how to conduct a risk assessment to satisfy the grant authorities and enhance your credibility in this webinar by certified grant professional Cyndi MacKenzie. MacKenzie will walk you through examples of internal and external policies you need to have in place, as well as practical risk assessment tools for your grants department. This webinar will assist to evaluate your risk in grant seeking—and also help you to determine whether or not to apply for a grant, how to document your procurement process, and whether there is any conflict of interest involved. You will learn who should be made aware of the risks of grant resources—and who should be part of creating internal and external controls, policies and procedures. As you will learn, risk assessment is not only for the grant professional—it is a necessary tool for the entire organization if grant dollars fund any aspect of your mission and goals.

After attending this session, you will know the procedures and policies needed to satisfy the Office of Management and Budget for federal grants. You will know which procedures and policies are becoming necessary for other funders. Plus, you will be able to protect yourself through internal and external controls—and avoid being labeled as “high risk” and ineligible for future funding due to fraud, waste and abuse.
