Running a federally funded grant project is a job that many are not formally trained for. You may not be familiar with common project level bumps in the road that often occur when we spend federal grant project funds either. This webinar will cover key elements of federal project monitoring standards, demonstrate how to monitor projects well, and identify risky areas to look for starting on day one. Good internal grant-funded project monitoring requires that your project manager knows the federal rules, has good internal monitoring practices and tailors his/her monitoring to the specific project and its risks.
