RISKY BUSINESS: MANAGING RISK IN YOUR HEAD START PROGRAM

APRIL 8 & 9, 2017
HYATT REGENCY
CHICAGO, IL

Saturday, April 8 – 9 am – 5 pm
Sunday, April 9 – 9 am – 12:00 pm

What a confusing, challenging – yet exciting – time for Head Start leaders! In less than 6 months we have welcomed a new administration and the new HSPPS, not to mention the continued implementation of the Uniform Guidance. All of these changes emphasize why you need to have a deeper understanding of what the law requires and permits and how to successfully innovate within the limits of the law while improving accountability and running a program.

Join Nicole Bacon and Ted Waters of Feldesman Tucker Leifer Fidell LLP at the 44th Annual National Head Start Conference and Expo for this one and a half day training addressing the hottest fiscal and HR issues affecting Head Start programs since the release of the new performance standards.  Attendees will leave this hands-on training with practical tips and techniques as well as slides, supplementary sources and sample checklists and documents.

Topics include:

  • ERSEA;
  • Fiscal Integrity and Management Issues;
  • Grants Management;
  • Human Resources;
  • Program Structure;
  • Privacy Issues;
  • Vendor-Subrecipient Relationships and Contracting Requirements;
  • Tips for implementing the new standards; and
  • Much, much more!!!

At this training, participants will:

  • Understand how to reduce risk within their Head Start program;
  • Learn how the HSPPS affects human resources and fiscal issues;
  • Discuss how to be innovative within the confines of both the HSPPS and Uniform Guidance; and
  • Understand the key risk areas for Head Start programs and strategies to reduce risk.
