Who should attend the Cash Management workshops?
The workshops are designed for fiscal officers and financial aid administrators. In addition, computer technical support staff, third-party servicers, and other professionals with budget and financial responsibilities for Federal student aid funds will find the workshops valuable.
The workshop content is at the intermediate level. It is not for beginners. You should have a basic understanding of the cash management regulations, in order to get the most from the workshop.
What will the workshops cover?
The workshops will –
- Review Title IV cash management life cycle procedures and requirements.
- Describe how to request, draw down, maintain, disburse, and return Title IV funds.
- Discuss how Common Origination and Disbursement (COD) processes affect institutional cash management procedures.
- Review Federal regulatory requirements and procedures for management of Title IV funds.
- Discuss internal and external reconciliation practices.
- Review the on-line cash management tools available through the “FSA Assessments” portion of IFAP.
- Cover best practices for solving cash management problems.
What should I bring?
Bring a three-ring binder for the materials. A pocket calculator will help in some of the exercises.
