Timing of Expenditures & Benefit to Award

Changes due to FT

This course will be placed on hold for a short time while updates are made due to Financial Transformation. Registration for this course will be closed as of July 6, 2023. The course will be republished in August 2023 and will require all previously registered learners who have not completed the course to restart.

The goal of this training is to illustrate how the timing of expenditures can impact whether the Award directly benefits from the expenditure. Benefit to the Award is a significant concept in financial compliance on sponsored projects. This class provides a broad understanding of how to stay in compliance with this requirement.

You must register for this class in order to access the content. The link to the class will be included in your confirmation of enrollment email which you should receive shortly after registering.

Completion of the course quiz is required for you to receive credit on your CORE transcript.
