Time & Effort Reporting for Federal Grants
Federal grants and cooperative agreements are high risk agreements because they involve mandatory time and effort reporting. We will discuss what is involved with
timekeeping for Federal awards. Specifically, what are the rules prescribed by the Uniform Guidance 2 CFR 200. We will identify a hidden minefield of labor costs based on time reports as they become a part of a “claim” to the US Government. An actual “war story” will back up our assertion. Our presentation includes a practical interpretation of the regulations, best practices and sample forms.
