You will focus on the unique performance management, measurement and monitoring issues for grants and grant-funded programs. You will enhance your awareness of performance issues relating to both achievement of program goals and effective and efficient management of program resources. You will learn a step-by-step, hands-on process to develop and implement a formalized monitoring function for grants that will apply to monitoring of recipients and sub-recipients. This process also includes self-monitoring within your agency or organization, a function mandated by 2 CFR 200, the Uniform Administrative Requirements.
To increase the effectiveness of your new monitoring function, you will learn to identify monitoring issues and tools applicable for both grantors and recipients.
Participants will also learn and apply the general and technical competencies identified by the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) to help ensure successful grants management outcomes.
