Grants Training Courses
Thank you for your interest in the fiscal requirements of U.S. Department of Education grant programs. If you have recently received a grant award, or you manage the implementation of grants in your agency, congratulations! You have been entrusted with the oversight of public funds and we hope to help you safeguard those funds in the best ways possible.
The Department of Education and its grantees are in the process of transitioning from the administrative regulations found in EDGAR (34 CFR Parts 74 and 80) and OMB Circulars (including A-133) to regulations implementing new OMB Uniform Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles, and Audit Requirements for Federal Awards. Grantees will implement various provisions of the new rules affecting pre- and post-award administration, cost principles, and audit requirements at different times, depending on when they receive grant awards, the end date of their fiscal year, and the specific provisions in the regulations.
For information about the Department's implementation of the new rules, please consult the "Uniform Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles, and Audit Requirements for Federal Awards- Technical Assistance for Grantees" page on ED.gov.
The online courses available at this page, including Discretionary Grant Administration, Formula Grant Administration, and in-depth discussions of financial management topics, are being updated to include the new rules. Updated versions will be available this summer (2015).
