Time & Effort Reporting for Federal Grants (X4-4622137)

9:00 AM - 10:01 AM EST

Vendor Platform

1.0 CPE Credits in AA


Federal grants and cooperative agreements are high risk agreements because they involve mandatory time and effort reporting. We will discuss what is involved with timekeeping for Federal awards. Specifically, what are the rules prescribed by the Uniform Guidance 2 CFR 200. We will identify a hidden minefield of labor costs based on time reports as they become a part of a “claim” to the US Government. An actual “war story” will back up our assertion. Our presentation includes a practical interpretation of the regulations, best practices and sample forms.


Public Accountants, Consultants, grant administrators, principal investigators/program managers, Awardees of Federal Grants and Cooperative Agreements which include: nonprofits, institutes of higher education, hospitals, Federal, state, local and tribal units of government.
