It’s Neither “Super” Nor a “Circular” so Why is Everyone Calling it the Supercircular (or maybe the “Omnicircular”)?

May 22, 2014

The Office of Management and Budget recently issued a revision and consolidation of the key Grants Circulars into a massive “Uniform Grants Guidance,” also known as the “Super-Circular.” Through the Super-Circular, the various Cost Principles, Common Rule Grants Administration Requirements, and Audit requirements have been consolidated and changed. These changes fundamentally alter the rules that apply to all Federal grants and sub grants received by your health center. Led by Ted Waters, this webinar will focus on major policy changes and what they mean for your Health Center.

Time and Effort Reporting Burdens and Risks

June 3, 2014

One of the biggest areas of risk attached to Health Centers’ federal grants is time and effort reporting. Developing appropriate and comprehensive personnel activity reporting systems is critical to grants management and compliance and remains a hot button issue for the HHS Office of Inspector General. Fortunately, the Supercircular gives grantees more flexibility to implement appropriate documentation systems. Led by Ted Waters, this webinar will teach participants how to properly do time and effort reporting.
