Posted on: March 17th, 2021 by NADO Admin

NADO to Offer Three Federal Grants Management Webinars Beginning in March; EDA to Participate in the Indirect Cost Fundamentals for Non-financial RDO Staff Webinar

Federal grants management expert, Bob Lloyd, will be featured during three upcoming NADO webinars that will focus on distinct aspects of federal grants management. The first webinar, Indirect Cost Fundamentals for Program Directors and Other Non-financial Regional Development Organization Staff, will distill the requirements for recovery of indirect costs contained in federal regulations and demonstrate in easy-to-grasp terms how a resulting indirect cost rate is obtained and used while planning and executing your federally grant-funded projects and programs. Bernadette Grafton, Program Analyst, Performance and National Programs, U.S. Economic Development Administration (EDA), will join Bob and talk about EDA’s approach to Indirect Cost. This webinar is scheduled for Wednesday March 24 from 2:00-3:30 p.m. ET.

The second webinar in the series will be held on Wednesday March 31 from 1:30-3:30 p.m. ET. Playing Well with Others: Effective Collaboration in all Directions will encourage and support examination of your Regional Development Organization’s existing “vertical and lateral” relationships and will identify federal policies that can be used to fashion sensible and effective alternatives.

The third webinar in the series, Purchasing with Federal Grant Funds: Proper Procedures and Allowable Costs, will explain the purchasing methods that are acceptable when spending federal grant funds and will demonstrate how to justify and document the costs of the most common goods and services you buy to support your awards. This webinar will be held on Wednesday April 7, 2021 from 1:30-3:30 p.m. ET.

All webinars will be recorded and made available to all registrants. The discounted rate for NADO members is $50 per webinar; the registration fee for non-members is $125. Registration is separate for each webinar and registration links are below.
