TO:            Agency Addressed  (No. 08, 2004-2005)

FROM:       Douglas A. Darling, Director

                 Division of Accounting and Auditing

                 Department of Financial Services

SUBJECT:  Contract and Grant Management Training for Service Providers

The Bureau of Auditing has provided training to key agency contract and grant managers for the past two years. The training has been well received by the attendees and we continue to receive positive feedback.  Recently there has been an interest by recipients/sub-recipients of state and federal financial assistance and other providers of client services to attend the class.  We welcome the opportunity to provide training to these non-state entities.  We have developed a new training class titled “Advancing Accountability” specifically for them.

We ask each State agency to join us in advancing accountability over the use of state funds by contacting these service providers to promote this training program.  The training program was developed to help non-state entities perform and document program and fiscal requirements of their projects in a manner that ensures accountability over state resources and prevent delays in payments. Key managers and other staff responsible for establishing organizational policies and procedures for the administration of agreements with the State should attend.  State funds may be used for travel expenses incurred for this training in accordance with Section 112.061, Florida Statutes, if such expenditures are allowable per the agreement and applicable laws, rules, and regulations and approved by the funding state agency.

Training sessions will be held on January 26, February 23, March 23, April 20, May 25, June 22, July 27, August 24, September 28, and October 26, 2005.  Classes will be from 9 AM to 3 PM at the Betty Easley Conference Center.  Service providers may register for a class by contacting Suzette Harris at 850-410-9194, Suncom 210-9194 or suzette.harris@fldfs.com.
