A pass-through entity has significant responsibilities to ensure that not only its own federal awards are in compliance, but also that its subrecipients are in compliance with all applicable regulations, including the Office of Management and Budget’s (OMB’s) Uniform Guidance and program-specific statutes and regulations. Unlike the administrative requirements of its predecessor OMB Circulars, the Uniform Guidance spells out explicitly a number of important requirements for making, managing, and closing out subawards, as well as subrecipient monitoring.

Please join Feldesman Tucker Leifer Fidell senior associate, Scott Sheffler, as he discusses the requirements set forth for all phases of the subaward process, and provides strategies for setting up meaningful systems and relationships.


Just a sampling of what this webinar will cover:

  • Understand the difference between Subgrants and Contracts
  • Understand the requirements that apply when making and managing a subaward
  • Identify strategies for structuring successful subrecipient relationships.
  • Understand and differentiate between the roles of subrecipients and vendors under the uniform guidance.
  • Identify the changes to subrecipients under the uniform guidance.
