While federal grants often enable local entities to accomplish far more than they could with solely their own resources, the path to obtaining such funds is far from smooth. It is important for local entities to thoroughly understand the procurement process and their role in it before accepting federal grants that entail procurement activities. All entities must closely review grants and understand their requirements to make fully informed decisions. To that end, all parties should fully comprehend: 1) the requirements of the Uniform Guidance; 2) the special requirements imposed by the granting agency; and 3) local procurement policies that may or may not comply with federal requirements. Procurement should be involved throughout the grant lifecycle to ensure compliance with all applicable laws and grant requirements to ensure the timely and equitable expenditure of grant funds.

What You'll Learn

After completing this online training session, learners will be able to:
1. Identify the parts of a grant relevant to procurement and know how to incorporate them into a procurement plan.
2. Know how to source the goods or services required by a solicitation in compliance with the Uniform Guidance.
3. Know the additional actions required once an award is made to a supplier to ensure compliance and reporting.
4. Know how to bring an entity's procurement policies, procedures, and regulations into compliance with federal grant requirements.
5. Know how to use your professional skills and judgement to gain necessary information when using federal funds.
