FTLF Attorney Presents at GPA Annual Conference

By Published On: November 4, 2020

Today, FTLF Partner Scott Sheffler will present on national policy requirements at the Grant Professional Association’s (GPA) Annual Conference.

Almost every federal grant entails employment and anti-discrimination standards, environmental requirements, fraud mitigation obligations, and more.  Often described in general terms as “national policy requirements” or “public policy requirements,” these obligations are not always well understood.

Mr. Sheffler’s presentation, Federal Grants: What Am I Agreeing To?… The Myriad Policy Obligations that Attach to Grant Funding, will provide an overview of these terms and cross-agency obligations, an introduction to tools that can be used to learn more about each, and certain key risk areas.

Mr. Sheffler is a certified Grant Professionals Association (GPA) Approved Trainer.
