The last workshop of the SPARC series will provide attendees with a general understanding of the internal and external compliance and regulatory environment. The workshop will cover the practices and procedures participants should follow to ensure compliance with regulatory and sponsor requirements. In order for participants to gain an understanding of how to protect the University from audit and compliance risk, presenters will provide information to answer the ultimate question "what are auditors looking for." Federal circulars, the cornerstones for the administration of federal projects, will be explained and relevant examples will be provided to assist participants with their interpretation.
Prerequisite: None; however, to obtain the SPARC, employees must first complete the required workshops in Track I - Accounting Practices, Procedures and Protocol series and the first four workshops in the SPARC series.
Due to limited seating, registration is restricted to participants who are currently working with a grant or contract.
This session is supported by the RIT Accounting Department.
