SUBAWARD: A STORY. AN NCURA BROADCAST. PULLMAN
 
   Pullman Site: Location: Lighty 280 Conference Room
It is a challenge to know whether the research administration profession has more acronyms than subawards have moving parts – we’ll call it a tie. With the additional Uniform Guidance requirements being added to the subaward realm, it has become even more important to understand and be able to navigate subaward waters efficiently and effectively. This webcast will take the participants through a fictional story of a financial assistance federally funded subaward – from conception to closeout.

The story will demonstrate the component requirements and responsibilities that most commonly arise and must be dealt with by the agency, the pass-through entity and the subrecipient on both the technical and research administrator side. Not sure what the risk assessment rules are? When you need an audit review? When the de minimis F&A rate is supposed to apply? How to decide if you should go (or can go) fixed-price or cost-reimbursement? How to tell when progress isn’t satisfactory? What is happening nationally that may offer future relief? This webcast – targeted to those actively involved in issuing or managing subawards subject to the Uniform Guidance – will answer these questions and more.

The Subaward Players:

Denise Clark, AVPR (U Maryland, College Park).
Ann Holmes, Assistant Dean, Behavioral and Social Sciences (U Maryland, College Park).
Richard P. Seligman, AVPR (California Institute of Technology).
Pamela A. Webb, AVPR (U Minnesota).
