Baker Tilly Webinar Series

  Uniform Guidance                                    REGISTER FOR THIS EVENT

Wednesday, July 1, 2015

1:00 - 2:00 p.m. ET

The OMB Uniform Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles, and Audit Requirements for Federal Awards; Final Rule (the Uniform Guidance) became effective as of December 26, 2014. Institutions that have programs supported by federally sponsored funds are now halfway through the first year governed by these regulations – so where does the industry stand? With all the changes (and all the chatter!) out there, how can you be confident that your institution is on track to meet these new requirements? 

Where are the biggest risks of noncompliance? What is important to sponsoring agencies and federal auditors? Where should you be focusing time and effort to achieve compliance?

In this webinar, we will provide an update on the current regulatory landscape with a focus on what your peers are doing to address the Uniform Guidance requirements. We will share some of the key initiatives institutions are undertaking to achieve compliance and help you identify what is common practice in the industry, as well as discuss some pitfalls to be aware of. Specifically, we will discuss institutional approaches that can be used for audit shops of all sizes. These include:

  • Updating policies impacted by the Uniform Guidance
  • Establishing internal controls over sponsored research
  • Documenting internal controls over sponsored research, including the frameworks used
  • Developing updated processes in accordance with the more impactful Uniform Guidance requirements
  • Ensuring proper training and communication plans are in place

Title: Small Shop Auditing

We offer a sincere apology for the technology glitch we experienced yesterday during the ACUA webinar on the Adventures in Small Shop Auditing. We realized some of you had difficulties registering and attending.

In the coming days we will send out a link to all of the presentation materials, answers to additional attendee questions, and a link to the recorded version of the webinar, all available on our website,

We understand many of you that could not attend have questions about receiving CPE credit. Since ACUA is a NASBA-approved provider for live CPE and we are not able to issue CPE for recorded webinars. However, we would like to re-offer this webinar to ACUA members who were unable to join yesterday’s event. We will be sending out communication in the next few weeks with a new scheduled date for this webinar.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact our team.

Thank you for your understanding and we look forward to seeing your participation in future webinars.
