AVOID LIGHTNING IN THE CLOUD: BASICS OF BECOMING FEDRAMP COMPLIANT AND NAVIGATING FISMA

Federal Publications Seminars

Each year, the federal government spends hundreds of millions of dollars safeguarding its IT systems. One of the key ways the government accomplishes this mission is by modernizing its aging IT infrastructure and – in the process – investing substantial resources in transitioning to a cloud-based environment. If your company contracts with the government and transacts business through the cloud, it must be well versed in the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (“FedRAMP”) and the Federal Information Security Management Act (“FISMA”).  In this webinar, seasoned government contracts attorneys Alexander Major and Franklin Turner will explain how your company can become FedRAMP certified while also complying with FISMA’s security requirements.

Recovering Federal Grant Indirect Costs — A Tutorial for Nonprofit Organizations

Federal Fund Management Advisor

When the U.S. Office of Management and Budget launched its federal grants reform initiative a couple of years ago, they heard a lot of complaints from nonprofit organizations about indirect cost recovery — or, more accurately, the lack of it. OMB was told that some federal agencies and many pass-through entities were refusing to recognize and reimburse these legitimate costs of performing federal awards. Many nonprofit organizations were unable to obtain a negotiated indirect cost rate agreement with the federal government because they often didn’t have a direct funding relationship with a federal agency. Further, even when they calculated their rate according to the applicable procedures, pass-through entities were refusing to accept the calculation unless it was federally approved. Talk about a “Catch 22”! Even those organizations that did have federally negotiated rates encountered resistance from awarding agencies in fully accepting them.
