About the course

Federal agencies are responsible for monitoring grants, but how do they fulfill those monitoring duties with limited personnel and budgets? Grant offices need to have consistent oversight monitoring methods and priorities. You will develop a risk assessment matrix that can be applied to monitoring planning and prioritization during this one-day workshop. You will practice methods and apply your new skills to conduct grant monitoring activities. You are encouraged to share your monitoring plan and other example documents with the facilitator in advance.
