Overview

This one-day workshop is designed to help individuals and organizations understand the regulations that govern their NGO’s US government funding (grants, contracts, and cooperative agreements). Our expert trainers will demystify the rules, debunk common misinformation, and highlight the federal regulations that affect recruitment, employment, advancement, and dismissal, all from a human resources perspective. Taught in a highly participatory style, this workshop will give you the most current knowledge you need to effectively comply with your funders’ requirements.

Who Should Attend

  • Human resource staff
  • Recruiters
  • Project/Program staff who need to understand HR compliance

  • Plan and implement allowable compensation, employee allowances, training, education, and travel expenses
  • Navigate the differences between assistance and acquisition regulations
  • Set and apply policies for documentation of employees’ time and level of effort​

Participants are responsible for making and paying for their own hotel/lodging arrangements. We have found that www.hotels.com usually offers comparable or even lower rates than we are able to negotiate. We recommend attendees look for hotels in the Dupont Circle neighborhood. Check out some suggestions for convenient hotels.
