45 CFR Part 75 – The Uniform Guidance for Head Starts

Presented by Wipfli 

We’ll discuss general provisions and administrative requirements in 45 CFR Part 75 and focus on standards for financial management systems, internal controls, property, equipment, procurement, and record retention. We’ll discuss allowable costs, unallowable costs, and costs that require prior approval. We’ll cover changes and additions to selected items of cost including personnel activity reports (formerly known as PAR), family-friendly policies, expensing proposal costs, and more.

Canceled: Risky Business: Managing Risk in Your Head Start Program

Presented by Feldesman Tucker Leifer Fidell

What a confusing, challenging - yet exciting - time for Head Start leaders! In less than 6 months we have welcomed a new administration and the new HSPPS, not to mention the continued implementation of the Uniform Guidance. All of these changes emphasize why you need to have a deeper understanding of what the law requires and permits and how to successfully innovate within the limits of the law while improving accountability and running a program.
