Ted Waters, managing partner of Feldesman Tucker Leifer Fidell LLP and nationally recognized for his expertise in Federal Grants Law, will be conducting a training on August 21, 2013 on the “Nuts and Bolts of Federal Grants Law”. Mr. Waters, along with fellow instructor Julie Murroff, of the US Department of Health and Human Services, will discuss the definition of a federal grant and the difference between types of grants; the ground rules of federal grants and where to find the rules (statutes, regulations, agency guidance); the key Federal actors (grants officer, program specialist, etc.); and the legal issues in grant administration (before, during and after the award). As an added bonus, the course will feature an in-depth discussion of government audits, grant disputes, fraud and abuse issues, and administrative and judicial litigation.
The course serves as a great introduction to federal grants or as a solid review for those who need a refresher course and is worth 3.0 CLE credit hours.
