About the Training

Wipfli In-Depth Training on OMB's Uniform Guidance

Having strong internal controls and understanding the rules governing how you can and cannot spend federal dollars are keys to fiscal management and overall compliance in your organization. Professionals new to the organization, as well as professionals who have been there for decades, will benefit from this review of the administrative and cost principles/allocation sections of the 2 CFR Part 200 – Uniform Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles and Audit Requirements for Federal Awards (also known as the “Uniform Guidance”).

Join this training workshop to learn about the new Uniform Guidance regulations and, more importantly, how to implement them in your organization. Review the regulations you need to know to stay in compliance through examples, stories and best practices learned from years of auditing and consulting. Take back up-to-date and relevant information to implement immediately in your agency. Wipfli’s nonprofit experts have been presenting the highest-quality training for more than 40 years. Participants declare Wipfli training “empowering,” “outstanding,” “meaningful,” “invaluable” and “relevant.” At this workshop, our experts will provide you with in-depth training relating to financial management and administration.
