This course provides a framework for understanding the conditions of properly expending federal grant funds. Federal grants have specific requirements and expectations. As such, procurement professionals must be capable of understanding and meeting the unique requirements of the grantor and reconciling local rules with federal rules. Failure to follow the requirements may result in questions from audit findings and even having to repay the grant. This course covers the most predominate federal requirements. However, there are many federal grants that have unique requirements that cannot be reviewed in a general federal grants course.
