(Recorded Webinar) Responding to Audit Findings
Health Centers have received literally billions of dollars in new federal funding in the past 2 plus years and the audits by the HHS Office of Inspector General, among other oversight agencies, have started. This webinar will discuss how this new funding has not changed the core principle that the federal grant system is a “trust but verify” system where compliance is driven by an after-the-fact review of grantee actions; a system where the grantees have the burden of proof to show that federal funds were used appropriately.
In this presentation, FTLF Managing Partner Ted Waters will bring years of experience to bear in his in-depth discussion of risks, strategies, and opportunities in the audit process. Based upon the legal underpinnings of the federal grant system and government rights to impose remedial measures, Mr. Waters will provide practical guidance for Health Centers on the “do’s and don’t’s” in audit process and audit resolution.

After this webinar, you will be able to:
- Understand the purpose of the audit process and the auditor’s role
- Identify risk areas and “red flags” in the audit process from the auditee perspective
- Evaluate grantee options and available courses of action at each stage of the audit process
Serving as Managing Partner of the firm since 2003, and a member of the Health Law and Federal Grants practices since 1992, Ted is a national authority in the area of federal grants, particularly in the health and community service spheres. He advises clients on all aspects of program requirements, including issues such as cost-based reimbursement, governance, grant administration, cost reporting, and administrative issues and routinely handles challenging issues such as government audits, internal investigations, and litigation. Ted's priority is to help each organization carry out its mission by offering practical, down-to-earth counsel and to ensure that legal challenges do not distract from that focus. [Full Bio]

If you need to document attendance for someone other than the account holder, we provide blank Certificates of Attendance for a supervisor to sign and certify that a different individual viewed the course.
Group Attendance: Due to the online nature of webinars, we cannot verify participation by more than one person. For groups, we provide an attendance record form and blank Certificates of Attendance to record attendance at a group viewing session and document each individual's participation. We recommend that a supervisor or colleague sign the certificate to certify attendance.
