Federal Grants Community of Practice Project
OFM has established the Federal Grants Community of Practice workgroup and has been holding bi-monthly meetings to discuss federal issues and share best practices. The workgroup’s main objectives are to create a community of resources, develop federal grant training curriculum, and identify and address ongoing grant management needs.
The workgroup currently has representatives from a variety of state agencies who manage federal grant programs of various nature and sizes. Members include fiscal staff, internal auditors and grant program management.
What are we working on now?
The federal workgroup continues to work on providing various federal grant training opportunities to state agencies. Here are some updates:
- The Federal Disclosure Form and Single Audit Overview eLearning classes are now available on the OFM training page.
- The State Auditor’s Office (SAO) presented the first in-person Federal Grant Requirements training class in September 2019 and the first virtual class on May 5, 2020. Both classes were well received. The session scheduled for June 1, 2021, will tentatively remain as an in-person class. If you are interested in attending, please register in LMS.
- The federal workgroup has a new Federal Grants Community of Practice SharePoint site that will be used to share resources, recorded webinars and for online community discussions.
- A new Enterprise Report Federal Expenditures by CFDA number is now available. This report is intended to assist with reporting expenditures on the federal disclosure forms. Additional information about the AFRS CFDA field and instructions for running the report are located on the federal resource site. We are currently in the process of developing a new Federal Revenues by CFDA number Enterprise Report.
