Federal Year-End Spending: Opportunities and Challenges

June 21, 2021

1:00 p.m. – 2:00 p.m. EDT

Complimentary

 

Year-end is quickly approaching. And you may find yourself somewhere between a rock and a hard place because you have funding for the remainder of this year. The Impoundment Control Act requires that you spend all the funding provided by Congress for this year. Yet, dire consequences await anyone who spends too much at any time or spends too late at year-end. The Antideficiency Act threatens potential loss of your job and possible imprisonment. What are you to do? What can you NOT do? Your very best defense is knowledge. You need to know what you can do, and what you cannot do with federal money at year-end. Knowledge is best gained through training, your own experience, and that of experts.

Join Graduate School USA’s complimentary webinar to develop or enhance your essential knowledge.
