Almost all federal grant programs require grantees to comply with cross-cutting administrative rules—or face significant cost disallowances and administrative sanctions. Understand the administrative rules that apply to virtually all federal grantees, including the hierarchy of rules; reports and records; and after-grant requirements. Build your expertise to ensure that your clients conform to federal administrative requirements and avoid claims for large refunds or being designated a high-risk grantee.
