Knowing the requirements in the uniform guidance regulations is vital, but it’s not enough to mitigate the risk of audit findings.

This webinar is designed to amplify your regulatory knowledge with practical perspective so you can strengthen control systems and decision-making throughout the grants lifecycle, while providing you with a basic understanding of OMB's uniform guidance.
