Breaking the "Starvation Cycle"
Instructor: Angela Coaxum and Jonathan Moll, CPA
Whether your nonprofit receives federal money through grants and contracts directly with the federal government, or if it is included in your state and local grants and contracts (often unbeknownst to nonprofits), the OMB Uniform Guidance that went into effect on December 26, 2014 applies to you. Learn about the key changes that will impact your organization, including a new single audit threshold, stronger internal controls, purchasing processes, risk assessments, and monitoring requirements.
This session will provide additional focus on the most notable new requirement-- that governments and other pass-through entities now must pay at least a minimum for your indirect costs. Find out how to determine your indirect costs, which differ from your administrative costs, so that you can negotiate a fair and reasonable reimbursement rate for your organization.
Participants will cover:
- Background on the “Starvation Cycle” first published by Stanford Social Innovations
- FAQs from the U.S. Office of Management and Budget Uniform Guidance on Indirect Costs
- Auditors perspective on Indirect Costs
- Understanding your Indirect Costs
- Integrating your true Indirect Costs into your Grant Applications
