Legal Advisory Services Webinar
Time & Effort Reporting and Cost Allocation

Presented by Ted Waters, Esq. Feldesman Tucker Leifer Fidell LLP

Many Head Start and Early Head Start programs have numerous funding streams, such as federal Head Start funds and state funding, to name but a few.  With the myriad funding sources that programs juggle, following the federal rules for cost allocation carefully and appropriately has never been more important.  If your program fails to follow these rules correctly, monitoring findings, cost disallowances, and additional penalties can result.  

In addition, charging the costs of employee time to specific federal grants can be onerous.  But doing it right - that is, following proper requirements and ensuring proper oversight - is critical.  Unfortunately, this continues to be an area in which we see a lot of findings, both from ACF Head Start monitoring, as well as OIG audits.

Use this training to double check your practices to help you avoid significant cost disallowances. At the end of this webinar, you will be able to:

  • Identify requirements for Time and Effort Reporting, including the 4 necessary elements for time sheets;
  • Analyze common timesheet problems;
  • Improve how your organization does cost allocation; and
  • Justify why all of this should matter to you.

We'll also include a sample timesheet that we recommend using.  

Who Should Attend: Executive Directors, Head Start Program Directors, CFOs, and others involved in planning or accounting activities, but all are welcome to attend.

We recommend that your organization share a webinar registration and gather to participate in the webinar together.  Should your organization not be able to come together, you may register for additional lines at the discounted rate of $50 per line.
