(Recorded Webinar) Responding to Audit Findings
The federal grant system is, at its core, a “trust but verify” system in which compliance is driven by after-the-fact review of grantee actions. Often, such after-the-fact reviews are in the form of Single Audit Act annual audits or Office of Inspector General audits.
In this presentation, FTLF Managing Partner Ted Waters and Partner Scott S. Sheffler bring their day-to-day practice in resolving audit findings to bear for an 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 and Mr. Sheffler provide practical guidance on the “do’s and don’t’s” in audit resolution.

Certificates of Attendance: We verify attendance upon completion of a webinar (live or recorded version) and will only issue certificates in the name of the account holder enrolled in the course. 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.
