IFC2 - Grants Management: Financial Policy Considerations in Preparation for HRSA Site Visits

‐ Oct 27, 2017 11:30am

Session presenters will review the Financial Capacity Review document, currently utilized by the Division of Financial Integrity (DFI) of HRSA, to analyze financial policies and procedures in place at health centers. This document contains 17 management control areas that HRSA believes will ensure that grant recipients have policies in place that are compliant with the Uniform Grants Guidance and the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Grants Policy Statement.

Special consideration will be made for findings most commonly disclosed in single audit reports, HHS Office of Inspector General reports, HRSA Operational Site Visit reports, and DFI grant reviews which are designed to ensure health centers have safeguards in place for the appropriate financial stewardship of federal funds.

  • Identify language that HRSA feels “must” be included in financial policies.
  • Understand rules surrounding record keeping in the general ledger related to grant funds, time and effort reporting, and property and procurement standards.
  • Identify the revisions to the Uniform Grant Guidance Compliance Supplement for 2017, specifically sliding fee and UDS testing, along with common single audit findings.
