Creating Performance Measurement Systems in
Response to OMB’s Super Circular and the
DATA Act



Make sure your programs are getting—and keeping—all the funding they are entitled to by staying current on the newest Federal standards. Both OMB’s new Super Circular and the new Digital Accountability and Transparency Act (DATA) recently impacted the way programs are audited. This important class will help you ensure you’re meeting these new requirements and holding on to all of your funding.

We’ll walk you through how to create and maintain performance measurement and outcomes systems that not only meet the new standards, but will make you more competitive for funding. Moreover, we’ll help you understand why demonstrating Return on Investment based on meeting goals in your programs is so important, and show you how you can do it. And you’ll leave with an understanding of the requirements and adjustments that must be made in order to be ready for the new Federal DATA Act and the financial reporting data sets that the federal government will be requiring from federal agencies and grantees.

Perfect for program directors, grants specialists, CFOs, CEOs, IT personnel, accounting managers, and tribal board/council members.
