When universities, nonprofits, and other types of non-federal organizations receive federally sponsored awards to perform research, service, teaching, or other activities, they must comply with documentation and accounting requirements for compensation paid to the organizations’ employees who devote effort to the awards. This course introduces the federal regulations that relate to compensation costs on federally sponsored awards.
This course features modules targeted to individuals who work with federally sponsored awards that include compensation as a direct cost to the award. Critical for universities, the course also includes a best practices module specifically intended for faculty and administrators working at institutions of higher education.
