Federal Grants Community of Practice Project

OFM has established the Federal Grants Community of Practice, and is currently holding quarterly meetings. The group’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 receive a significant amount of federal grants and includes accountants, internal auditors, and grant management staff.

What are we working on now?

The federal workgroup continues to work on the development of the federal grants training curriculum. At the most recent workgroup meeting, the group finalized the federal grants training development plan and timeline, shown below.

The federal grants training curriculum will include a variety of online and in-person training classes.  We hope to offer the first training class, OFM – Federal Disclosure Forms (online), by June 2019. The group has also been collaborating with the State Auditor’s Office, and hope to have a new in-person training class focused on federal grant compliance offered in the summer of 2019.

In addition, the workgroup is in the early stage of developing common resources and hope to have the OFM federal resource site updated with federal resources available for all agencies.
