About the course

Pass-through entities must monitor subrecipients based on the terms of their primary Federal grant agreements and any additional organizational policies. You will develop working familiarity with a risk-based approach to monitoring, apply techniques for assessing subrecipients, and gain insight into potential problem areas in grants administration. These insights inform how you can ensure proper spending of Federal funds on approved activities and reduce risk of negative Single Audit findings. This is an elective course in the Pass-Through Track of the GMCP™.
