Now that your institution has been awarded the funds required to carry out your research project, it is only a matter of time before the agreed upon terms and conditions between you and the regulatory entities demand more and more of your attention.
In order to successfully comply with the regulatory requirements of multiple state and federal agencies, institutions must build strong internal auditing and monitoring programs. Failure to do so could put you at risk of serious compliance violations, or grant fraud scenarios, such as these:
- Columbia University settles False Claims Act allegations involving mismanagement of federal grant money, which included failure to accurately monitor and track the employees' work hours which were reported to grant fund managers for reimbursement. The total settlement amount was $9,020,073.
- The University of California Davis agrees to pay $499,700 to resolve allegations of federal grant fraud involving failure to disclose overlapping and duplicative awards of grant money.
To protect yourself, the research and your institution, developing a robust auditing and monitoring program that will identify and correct non-compliance proactively is KEY.During this interactive, live, 60-minute online training, Ms. Charboneau Wishon will cover the following topics:
