In the current environment, grants management can feel a bit like a circus for many governments – juggling each grant, unique requirements, multiple activities, timelines for grant expenditures, managing indirect costs and grant match. While overseeing other responsibilities and ensuring consistent internal controls and compliance strategies across the organization, finance staff serves a vital role, acting as “ringleaders” for the grants circus ensuring all departments have what they need to perform at the highest level. Review the essentials of internal controls and discuss how financial staff can utilize grants policies and processes, risk assessments and internal controls to create a compliant and consistent grants environment.
