(Recorded Webinar) Concept to Practice: Subrecipient Relationships

Duration: 170 minutes
Recorded on: 6/18/2024

Why can the subrecipient relationship be so time-consuming?  This training covers all aspects of managing subrecipients, and is specifically designed to build step-by-step from core compliance obligations to practical implementation steps and tools. Throughout the presentation, Feldesman attorney Scott S. Sheffler will translate the compliance obligations established at 2 C.F.R. 200.231 through 200.233 into plain language, and from there into actionable management strategies, tasks, and tools.  This presentation will follow the life-cycle of a subaward relationship, to cover:

  • Background legal obligations;
  • Subrecipient selection and risk assessment;
  • Subrecipient agreement drafting and negotiation; and
  • Subrecipient oversight and compliance enforcement.

Sample tools will be provided as part of the course and will serve as a basis for practical portions of the presentation.  Questions will be welcome throughout.

If you need to document attendance for someone other than the account holder, we provide blank Certificates of Attendance for a supervisor to sign and certify that a different individual viewed the course. 

Group Attendance: Due to the online nature of webinars, we cannot verify participation by more than one person. For groups, we provide an attendance record form and blank Certificates of Attendance to record attendance at a group viewing session and document each individual's participation. We recommend that a supervisor or colleague sign the certificate to certify attendance.
