FTLF Partner Scott Sheffler, Brings His Experience to Columbus, OH for FTLF’s Federal Funding Academy

By Published On: June 30, 2017

Join Scott Sheffler at FTLF’s Federal Funding Academy on August 2 & 3 in Columbus, Ohio, as he shares his unique federal grant management experience during this comprehensive two-day overview of the federal grants system.

A Partner in the firm’s Federal Grants and Health Care practice groups, Mr. Sheffler advises clients on matters of federal grant law, government contract law, and health care law. He assists clients with the multiple requirements that apply upon acceptance of federal grant funding, including the Uniform Guidance, the OMB Circulars that preceded the Uniform Guidance, and program-specific statutory and regulatory funding conditions.

Mr. Sheffler regularly provides grants training in the form of live training and webinars. Since January, he has been traveling the Gulf Coast to provide training to Gulf Coast Restoration Fund grantees through a technical assistance program arranged by the Department of Treasury. The Gulf Coast Restoration Fund provides grants to state and local governments in furtherance of their ongoing efforts to recover from the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill. Training has included full overviews of the Uniform Guidance, and currently entails one-day training on the Procurement Standards, Subrecipient Relationships, Federal Interest and Property Management. These pieces of training are tailored primarily to local government recipients, with their somewhat unique position in the federal financial assistance system.

Prior to joining the firm in 2015, Scott practiced with the U.S. Navy Office of General Counsel, advising on government contract matters and government investigations. He holds a Master of Laws (“LL.M.”) degree in Government Procurement Law from the George Washington University Law School.

Joining Mr. Sheffler in Columbus are FTLF’s Managing Partner, Ted Waters, and guest speaker Jerry Bertrand, as they address the regulatory requirements applicable to the most critical areas of grant management.

We look forward to seeing you in Columbus!
