OMB Uniform Guidance: Show Me the Money!
Uniform Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles, and Audit Requirements for Federal Awards 
[Lunch & Learn Webinar]


Did you know that as of December 26th, 2014 the Federal Government now mandates that

 nonprofits must be reimbursed for some or all of their indirect costs when performing services for governments at all levels - local, state, federal - when  federal funds are being used (either directly or via state or local 'pass through' agencies)?  Yes, this means they will pay for "overhead" (a.k.a lights, rent, administrative support, etc.) 

NYCON and the National Council of Nonprofits will present an introductory webinar to provide the most recent information about these changes and how your organization can start taking advantage of them. This session will provide an overview designed to help the executive director, fiscal director, program director, and grants managers alike - get up to speed on what is included in the new OMB Uniform Guidance and identify internal changes that may be needed to keep their good standing, as well as benefit from the recognition that governments need to pay their fair share when purchasing services from nonprofits. Moreover, this session will provide some practical solutions for dealing with the misapplication of requirements you may encounter.
