According to the U.S. Government Accountability Office, the federal government awarded approximately $675 billion in grants to state and local governments. However, despite steps taken by the Office of Personnel Management (OPM), the Office of Management and Budget, and the Chief Financial Officers Council, providing quality training to the grants workforce remains a challenge.

Graduate School USA’s new Grants Curriculum focuses on both technical and professional competencies identified by OPM to:

  • Understand the grants process life cycle from pre-award to audit and close-outs;
  • Develop and implement strategies to effectively monitor Federal grant recipients; and
  • Learn and relate Federal cost principles to effectively develop and oversee Federal grants.
