Grants Management: Tackling

Compliance Requirements Like a Pro

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

Although every PI recognizes the need for compliance they often wish someone else would worry about it. The NIH defines compliance in part as the effective management of public funds to maximize research outcome. Compliance also implies the avoidance of mismanagement of federal funds.

Recent reviews of audit findings at Universities point out several compliance issues including Conflict of Interest. Unfortunately, identifying and managing the many potential sources of conflicts of interest is not that simple.

Additionally, although many PIs seem to understand the rules and regulations with Human Studies Research – ensuring compliance with the Institutional Review Boards that oversee this type of research is easier said than done. There are also several “special cases” that involve complying with procedures and regulations for participant support and program income. Both of which are closely scrutinized by auditors.

During this insightful webinar, your expert presenter, Dr. Michael Lesiecki, delineates how to develop a management process that results in fulfillment of compliance, shares effective approaches for easing the burden of data management, provides proven methods for managing conflicts of interest, and much more.
