The Office of the Inspector General is hosting a webinar for local leaders on the use of Fiscal Recovery Funds under the American Rescue Plan Act.

Topics include:

• 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 from the U.S. Treasury Department

The same webinar will be held at two different times, on Aug. 22 from 1 to 2:30 p.m. and on Sept. 26 from 1 to 2:30 p.m. It is geared toward city and town administrators, purchasing agents, public works managers and finance directors.

The webinar is part of the inspector general’s mandate to prevent and detect waste, fraud and abuse of public resources through its Pandemic Funding Oversight Unit.
