Grants Management: Key Tactics for Effective Monitoring

60-Minute On-Demand Webinar Available in CD, MP4 and PDF Transcript.

How often do you currently monitor the work performed by others, especially subawardees? If this hasn’t been on your priority list lately, you should know that this area is very susceptible to audits and as a PI you bear significant responsibility for any oversight. Normally, the sponsored programs office structures subaward agreements but as the PI, you play the key role of defining the work to be done. Monitoring efforts should be put into place right at the beginning to not only demonstrate performance to agreed-upon deliverables but also to be able to take corrective action should things go awry.

Additionally, the regulations associated with cost-sharing and matching funds have changed in recent years and the monitoring and tracking of both can become problematic unless you have a solid monitoring system in place.

During this information-packed webinar, your expert presenter, Dr. Michael Lesiecki, uncovers the key features PI’s need to include to build a successful monitoring system. Learn what auditors look for as evidence of adequate or inadequate monitoring practices, quickly identify high risk areas that require extra monitoring, and walk-away with effective strategies to implement when things go wrong.
