The federal education enterprise is about to undergo a dramatic shift. Are you ready? How will sequestration affect your budget for next year? And what do you know about the suggested changes to all of the major OMB circulars? Did your State apply for an ESEA waiver? If so, what will that mean for you? And what about the reauthorization of ESEA, IDEA, WIA, AEFLA, and Perkins?
New regulations, legislation, and budget proposals are flying around Washington as politicians run for reelection and government officials work to put their stamp on federal policy before Election Day. So if you do not know the answers to these questions – or if just thinking about them is making your head spin – ensure you are up-to-date on new initiatives and regulatory changes by attending Brustein & Manasevit, PLLC’s fall forum. Attorneys, experts, and agency staff will be on hand to brief you on current policy, proposed changes, and how the November election results will impact federal grants management down the road.
This year, for the first time – we are offering an optional pre-session. Michael Brustein will conduct a 2½ hour tutorial on the Education Department General Administrative Regulations (EDGAR) Plus Book, which will provide an in-depth review to the federal grants management and allowability rules. All attendees will be provided an EDGAR-Plus book. This pre-session will give you a heads up on all the rules and regulations discussed during the forum.
Our action packed two day conference will include representatives from the Office of Inspector General (U.S. Education Department), the U.S. Government Accountability Office, as well as officials from the Louisiana Department of Education addressing the high risk designation of Orleans Parish, and officials from Philadelphia School District discussing federal education grant management reforms. Additionally, attorneys from the firm will address a wide range of topical issues including programmatic and fiscal compliance under the major federal education grants.
Don’t be left out!
