Subrecipient Monitoring includes a self study e-book delivered to you immediately upon purchase for 4 hours of CPE credit.
Grant money comes with plenty of strings attached! One string involves subrecipient monitoring. If your auditee receives grant monies but then passes some or all of the money on to other organizations (called subrecipients) the auditee still has an obligation to make sure that the money is being used as intended.
Federal grant regulations have always required grantees that make subawards to monitor subrecipients. However, when the Office of Management and Budget issued the Uniform Guidance, they strongly emphasized the need for subrecipient monitoring and added a few important requirements.
This text is intended help you understand subrecipient monitoring requirements and provide tools and techniques to help you meet your obligations to the grantor.
