Description

High Level Background on the Origins and Objectives of the SuperCircular
  • Overview of how the “old” rules (e.g., OMB A110, 22 CFR 226, OMB A122, OMB A133, etc.) correlate with the “new” rules
  • High level discussion of how the changes will affect the various staff members within the USG, recipients and auditors (e.g., the Recipient Finance Staffer who sub-grants funds will become very busy!)
  • Overview of new risks
  • Overview of new opportunities for consultants and auditors in assisting prime recipients to manage subrecipients
Detailed Review and Discussion of the New Section 200.100 (Subpart B -General Provisions) and 200.200 (Subpart C – Pre-Federal Award Requirements and Contents of Federal Award)
  • These sections essentially replace the old OMB A110 (22 CFR 226 for USAID and 45 CFR 74 for HHS/CDC) and the training will examine what old rules have been included in the new rules, as well as what has changed. For example, there is a substantial amount of additional information which the primes must include in their sub-agreements, which, if not done, could result in unnecessary audit findings.
Detailed Review and Discussion of the New Section 200.300 (Subpart D - Post-Federal Award Requirements Standards for Financial and Program Management)
  • This section correlates with what had previously been covered in the 22 CFR 226/45CFR 74, as well as the USAID Mandatory Standard Provisions (for US and NON-US NGOs) and the HHS/Grants Policy Statement. There are substantial changes in this section including the following:
  • Agencies' Adoption of the 10% De Minimus and Higher Indirect Cost Rates
  • New Performance Measurement Requirements which will now require the technical and financial staff to work more closely together
  • New Internal Control Requirements
  • New Cost Share Rules
    Subrecipient Monitoring and Management (possibly the most important change!)
Detailed Review and Discussion of the new section 200.400 (Subpart E – Cost Principles)
  • This section covers how the three different sets of “old” cost principles (OMB A122, A21 and A87) have been consolidated into a single set and includes discussion of what principles have come out, been changed, and what is totally new
  • Discussion of the additional requirement for determining cost “reasonableness”
  • Clarification on the 22 areas where Prior Approvals by Federal Awarding Agencies may be necessary
  • Pass-through entity (or Prime) cost allowability for managing subrecipients and limitations on what kind of organizations can do this
  • Timekeeping requirements
Detailed Review and Discussion of the New Section 200.500 (Subpart F – Audit Requirements)
  • This section will cover how the old OMB A133 has been changed and what new rules have been put in place. It will cover the new thresholds and changes in the levels of materiality.
  • Discussion of how auditors may need/wish to change their audit programs and considerations of risk
Discussion of the Applicability for Different Types of Organizations of the 10 Appendices
