The significant changes in rules and regulations set by the US Government in 2014 are now applicable for your organisation. Both USAID (through 2 CFR 200 and 2 CFR 700) and State (through 2 CFR 600) have put out their new guidelines. We are pleased to confirm dates for our popular USAID recipient training course, organised to help you with the challenges in effectively meeting your new reporting requirements.

Why attend?
 Requirements for international NGOs in receipt of USAID funding are now more complex and demanding. The US Government expects recipients and sub-recipients to be compliant with the new guidelines which your auditors will be testing for compliance.

 Not just theory but practical examples throughout - this training programme led by Doug Franke of SustainAbility Africa, takes an in-depth look into the requirements of working with USAID grant funding providing critical information and practical real-life examples of how to comply with the new guidelines.

 This course will enable you to get on track with compliance in just a few days. You will have an opportunity to discuss the new rules and how to transition to the new regulatory environment. Attendees will leave with comprehensive knowledge of the new guidelines and key points on how to prepare for an efficient and effective audit.

Certification of at least 16 CPE hours (24 if you attend both courses).

We look forward to seeing you at this event. Previous courses have been extremely popular so book your place now to avoid disappointment.

11 - 12 January 2017 (09.00am - 17.30pm)
US Government compliance 2016 and beyond

Bring your staff up-to-date for your USAID audit in just two days!
The popular two-day course has now been completely updated with the newest guidance from the US Federal Government as well as its various agencies. This course will bring your technical, financial, internal audit, M&E and compliance staff right up-to-date on what they must do to comply with the guidelines and be ready for the USG or “Yellow Book” audit.

There are now new responsibilities for performance reporting, internal controls, sub-recipient management, procurement and other areas that must be understood to meet your agreement requirements. 

While USAID is still interpreting exactly how to implement some of these rule changes for Non-US organisations, it would appear that both prime and sub-recipients have the option to elect to receive the new 10% de minimis (indirect costs), under 2 CFR 200.414 (f), and this course includes an exercise of how to transition to the 10% environment.

Cost:
£650+ VAT
16 CPE credit hours

13 January 2017 (09.00am - 17.30pm)
Internal controls under the revised 'Greenbook'

Understand the how-to's of the revised Greenbook in one day!
The new federal guidance clearly states that “The recipients must: (a) establish and maintain effective internal control over the federal award that provides reasonable assurance that the organisation is managing the federal award in compliance with federal statutes, regulations, and the terms and conditions of the award. These internal controls should be in compliance with guidance in “Standards for Internal Control in the Federal Government,” (also known as the “Green Book”) issued by the Controller General of the United States or the “Internal Control Integrated Framework.”

This course will provide a detailed overview of the Greenbook, including :

     How it is structured
  How to implement the standards
  How to handle real-life compliance challenges

The course will provide practical examples throughout. Regardless of your organisation’s existing internal control environment, this course will enable you to better understand how to ensure your organisation is equipped with the knowledge and know-how to operate efficiently, effectively and compliantly.

Cost:
£375+ VAT
8 CPE credit hours

Alternatively, you can attend the full 3 day course for £950+VAT.
(The cost of training is an allowable cost under USAID regulations.)

Each day will include multiple refreshment breaks, including drinks and snacks and a light buffet lunch will also be provided.

King’s Cross St Pancras is the nearest station, and has access to the Victoria, Northern, Piccadilly, Circle, Metropolitan and Hammersmith & City lines. King’s Cross St Pancras is approximately 10 minutes walk away from the venue. Euston, Caledonian Road and Angel underground stations are all also just a short bus journey away.
