Description:  Due to concerns regarding COVID-19 (coronavirus) and universities suspending non-essential travel, Maximus will be converting our 13th Annual Facilities and Administrative (F&A) Long Form Workshop, that was scheduled to be held from Tuesday, April 14 - Thursday, April 16, 2020 in Chicago, into a "virtual workshop" through Zoom Web Conferencing.

This introductory workshop provides an overview of the requirements under 2 CFR, Part 200 for preparing the Long Form F&A cost rate proposal. The workshop will give cost accountants, cost analysis managers, administrators for research and sponsored projects, controllers, budget directors, and internal and external auditors a working knowledge and better understanding of the F&A rate development process. Interactive exercises and reference to a simplified rate proposal offer hands-on practice to participants. This course incorporates the most up-to-date information on the OMB "Uniform Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles and Audit Requirements for Federal Awards" and discusses the impact of these vital changes. The newly published "CAS Best Practices Manual for Reviewing Institutions of Higher Education Long-Form Facilities & Administrative Cost Rate Proposal" is also incorporated into discussions throughout the workshop. Workshop instructors will include Ms. Caroline Beeman, Director, Mr. Chuck Wuensch, Senior Manager, Ms. Deb Carmel, Senior Consultant, and Ms. Julie Jarvis, Sr. Consultant. F&A Long Form Workshop attendees will receive 16 CPE credits for attending the virtual sessions.

Instructors:  Instructors will include Ms. Caroline Beeman, Director, Mr. Chuck Wuensch, Senior Manager, and Ms. Deb Carmel, Senior Consultant. Read their bios here
