In a time of increased accountability, federal agencies must be increasingly more careful to ensure all costs are allowable. Not only must costs be allowable under the grant or program, but also all costs must be allowable under an entity's applicable OMB circular. 

Are you certain your costs are allocable, reasonable and necessary?

Discover how to make this important determination in our 90-minute webinar featuring Brette Kaplan of Brustein & Manasevit, PLLC.

Plus, you'll have the opportunity to ask questions during the live Q&A portion of the webinar.  

You'll learn:

  • The cost requirements of OMB Circulars A-87, A-21 and A-122
  • Best practices for navigating the applicable circulars
  • Examples of "Selected Items of Cost"
  • Cost principles you need to know
