METROPOLITAN COMMUNITY SERVICES (dba MCS-T.O.U.C.H.) is the recipient of a grant from the U.S. Department of Labor, Employment and Training Administration. This federally funded grant has strict federal guidelines and requirements.
MCS-T.O.U.C.H. will also partner with outside entities to provide various programmatic services to meet the scope of work of the grant. In order for MCS-T.O.U.C.H. to comply with certain requirements of its grant, the areas of need are as follows:
- Financial infrastructure and monitoring system for internal grants administration
- Fiscal infrastructure for Sub-recipient/contractors, including risk assessment and on-going monitoring
- Develop contracts for vendors and Sub-recipient/contractors
MCS-T.O.U.C.H. requires fiscal and grants administration systems be in place to address requirements for compliance with the federal regulations governing its DOL grant agreement by September 1, 2015
- Review organizational fiscal internal controls pertaining to on-going internal monitoring and Sub-recipient/contractor monitoring and develop a fiscal infrastructure for federal grants administration and Sub-recipient/contractor monitoring
- Develop a risk assessment tool for Sub-recipient/contractor assessment prior to entering into grant agreements
- Provide training to staff on the fiscal infrastructure created for grants administration
- Provide on-going fiscal monitoring of Sub-recipient/contractors based upon risk analysis
As a newly awarded DOL grant recipient, MCS-T.O.U.C.H. wants to ensure that its policies and procedures are relevant and up to date. Current fiscal policies, such as accounting, procurement, and internal controls should be thoroughly reviewed to address the requirements of the DOL grant and to ensure systems are in place that would address ongoing internal monitoring and Sub-recipient/contractor monitoring for compliance with the federal regulations.
