WHY ATTEND

Having strong internal controls and understanding the rules governing how you can and cannot spend federal dollars are keys to fiscal management and overall compliance in your organization.

Professionals new to the organization, as well as professionals who have been there for decades, will benefit from this one-day review of the administrative and cost principles/allocation sections of the 2 CFR Part 200 – Uniform Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles and Audit Requirements for Federal Awards (also known as the “Uniform Guidance”) and one-day review on implementing the Head Start Act and Head Start Program Performance Standards.

Join this training workshop to learn about the Uniform Guidance and Head Start regulations and, more important, how to implement them in your organization. Review the regulations you need to know to stay in compliance through examples, stories, and best practices learned from years of auditing and consulting. Take back up-to-date and relevant information to implement immediately in your agency.

Wipfli’s nonprofit experts have been presenting the highest-quality training for more than 40 years. Participants declare Wipfli training “empowering,” “outstanding,” “meaningful,” “invaluable” and “relevant.”

TRAINING WORKSHOP OUTLINE

Day 1: Overview of Uniform Guidance

Wednesday, May 6, 2020; 8:30 a.m. – 5 p.m.
Advanced Preparation: None
Level:   Basic
Prerequisite: None
Field of Study:   Specialized Knowledge
CPE*:  7.0 credit(s)

After an introduction and discussion of the laws and regulations, there will be a discussion of the general provisions and administrative requirements. We’ll focus on these key areas:

  • Applicability of and implementation dates for the new regulations
  • Standards for financial management systems and internal controls
  • Property and equipment
  • Program income
  • Budget revisions
  • Procurement
  • Requirements for pass-through agencies
  • Reporting and record retention requirements

In addition, the cost principles cover the costs that a grant-funded program can charge to federal grant awards. General principles, allowable costs, unallowable costs and costs that require prior approval will be discussed. We’ll also discuss all changes in regard to cost allocation and selected items of cost.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Review the organization, applicability and implementation timeline of the Uniform Guidance.
  2. Discuss the requirements for financial systems.
  3. Discuss the regulations on program income, property and procurement.
  4. Explore the requirements for reporting and record retention.

Day 2:  Head Start Regulation Overview

Thursday, May 7, 2020; 8:30 a.m. – 5 p.m.

Advanced Preparation: None
Level:   Basic
Prerequisite: None
Field of Study:   Specialized Knowledge and Applications
CPE*:  7.0 credit(s)

The Head Start Act identifies pages of guidelines that HS/EHS programs need to follow to stay in compliance. When you are implementing the Head Start Act, there are numerous things to consider, including how decisions impact your program. In this overview, we will explore the Head Start Act and give you time to learn where to find information and dig into the details once you are back at the office. And since the Head Start Act goes hand in hand with the Head Start Program Performance Standards, 45 CFR Parts 1301-1305 (HSPPS), we will explore the highlights of the HSPPS. Our goal is to help you get comfortable with what HS/EHS programs need to follow to stay in compliance. We will pay special attention to the following areas:

  • Definitions (they sometimes differ depending on the regulation)
  • Administrative requirements (administrative limitations)
  • Power and functions (governing body, policy council, policy committees and administrative requirements)
  • ERSEA (eligibility, recruitment, selection, enrollment and attendance)
  • Records (what to keep, how to keep it and for how long)
  • Qualifications and wages (background checks, trainings, minimum staff requirements)
  • Monitoring Protocol (FA1 and FA2)

Learning Objectives:

  1. Explore how the Head Start Act and the HSPPS impact each other.
  2. Discuss how the Head Start Act and HSPPS impact your program.
  3. Share ideas, thoughts and best practices of ongoing leadership about these requirements.
