3.22 Financial Management Training Requirements

Introduction

New for fiscal year 2016, both the Point of Contact (POC) and all Financial Points of Contacts (FPOCs) for OJP awards must complete either the DOJ Grants Financial Management Online Training or OJP's in-person Financial Management Training Seminar within 120 calendar days after the date of the recipient's acceptance of the award. New grantees, grantees with a "high" pre-award risk, and DOJ high risk grantees will receive a withholding of funds special condition until the POC and FPOC have completed the training.

OVW and COPS Office recipients are not required, but highly encouraged, to complete the DOJ Grants Financial Management Online Training.

Requirement for Compliance

Successful completion of either the DOJ Grants Financial Management Online Training or OJP’s in-person Financial Management Training Seminar on or after January 1, 2015, will satisfy this requirement.

In the event that either the POC or a FPOC for an award changes during the period of performance, the new POC or FPOC must successfully complete an OJP financial management training by 120 calendar days after — (1) the date of OJP's approval of the “Change Grantee Contact” GAN (in the case of a new POC), or (2) the date the POC enters information on the new FPOC in GMS (in the case of a new FPOC).

Non-compliance with the training requirements will result in placing a withholding of funds on all applicable awards.

Expiration of Training Certificates

POC and all FPOCs for the award will be required to re-certify their compliance with the financial management training requirement by successfully completing either the in-person OJP Financial Management Training or the DOJ Grants Financial Management Online Training every (3) three years.
