Does the idea of a Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) - Office of Inspector General (OIG) audit have you calling in sick and headed for the hills? As most of us know, the OIG can audit a health center's use of grant funds at any time to ensure that the use of this funding is in accordance with federal requirements and the terms of the grant. At BKD we know how intimidating this can be, so we’ve designed this session to review the guide used by the OIG to audit AIMS grant funds in the fall of 2020.
During this session, we will review the various records that should be in place to support the use of grant funds, in addition to the supporting grants management concepts, to ensure that health center compliance can be assessed from a HRSA programmatic and Uniform Grants Guidance perspective. So the next time the OIG comes knocking - you can hang on to those sick days since you’ll be prepared to support your health center through a successful OIG audit.
