Through ARPA, the federal government dispersed millions of dollars to communities throughout Massachusetts to offset the effect of the COVID-19 pandemic. In keeping with its mandate to prevent and detect waste, fraud and abuse of public resources, the Massachusetts Office of the Inspector General’s (OIG), through its Pandemic Funding Oversight Unit, is offering a free webinar on current rules and best practices for use of Fiscal Recovery Funds under ARPA.
The webinar will cover:
- Uniform Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles, and Audit Requirements for Federal Awards, including monitoring requirements, procurement rules, and oversight of subrecipients and contractors.
- Allowed uses of Fiscal Recovery Funds, including projects that are presumed eligible under federal rules.
- Updates to the ARPA/FRF rules promulgated by the U.S. Treasury Department.
The webinar will take place on September 26, 2023 (1:00 p.m. - 2:30 p.m.).
