Duration: 40 minutes
Recorded on: 6/14/2022

In the first installment of this webinar series, we will discuss fundamental concepts such as important definitions, what a “federal interest” is, how it is created, its importance to Head Start programs, and the legal and practical implications of federal interests in property. Other important concepts include an explanation of what is a notice of federal interest or “NFI” and when and how it should be filed. 

In this webinar, we will also discuss the fundamentals and best practices for managing supplies and equipment acquired with federal funds. For example, what happens when delegates (subrecipients) and contractors use federally supported equipment and supplies?  When it comes to federally supported equipment and supplies important grantee responsibilities include:

  • Tagging & Recording Property
  • Physical Inventory
  • Use of Equipment Purchased with federal funds
  • Equipment Transfer and Disposal

Our discussion will include an explanation of the SF-428 and when and how your organization should file this important reporting form.

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.
