Subrecipient Non-compliance, Is Your Monitoring Program Strong Enough?
Stacie Massey, Senior Financial Manager, State of Ohio Office of Budget and Management
We are all doing more with less these days and it seems monitoring takes a back-seat to other critical grants management tasks. However, it is often overlooked the risk that agencies are taking when not developing a comprehensive monitoring program or completing monitoring reviews late in the grants process. Just because a sub-recipient agency is strong in meeting their program specific goals, does not mean they are properly administering the funds in accordance with requirements. This presentation will provide case study examples from audits from the US Department of Homeland Security, Office of Inspector General over two federal programs in Ohio that had significant questioned costs because of sub-recipient non-compliance. How sub-recipient monitoring efforts could have prevented or detected these issues will be discussed, as well as, provide agencies with some ideas on how to strengthen their current monitoring programs.
