Nonprofit procurement actions can be one of the most complex and risky things you do when using federal funds, and too often nonprofits are completing the work without fully understanding the rules and related risk. Compounding these challenges is the fact that under the new Uniform Guidance (2 CFR 200) nonprofit procurement work is more complex—not easier to do. Organizations need to fully understand procurement with federal funds, and those rules need to be reflected in your policies, need to be followed during your procurements, and need to be well documented in your files. Like with any other form of non-compliance, a procurement action that uses the wrong dollar threshold or incorrect procurement method or fails to have sufficient competition is at risk for being disallowed and requiring the nonprofit to return the procurement action funds.
Please join Rex Porter as he provides clear and practical explanations of procurement policy and purchasing action responsibilities under 2 CFR 200 to help improve your nonprofit’s compliance and eliminate potential areas of risk.
