Pandemic response and recovery is providing more funding sources for public health agencies. While positive, it also complicates cost allocation, revenue recovery, and other fiscal processes. Unless collocated, public health agencies are not designated as a public assistance agency, but receive federal funds, or pass-through funds. As a result, they usually have a choice in indirect cost calculation methods. This webinar will discuss the pros and cons of utilizing cost allocation plans versus indirect cost rates, and how mergers or reorganizations may impact cost allocation plans, indirect cost rates, and revenue recovery.
- Understand the pros and cons of cost allocation plans and indirect cost rates in the current and future funding environment.
- Identify cost and revenue issues that may arise from state and territorial health agency mergers and reorganizations.
- Provide a forum for peer-to-peer learning and sharing, and identification of best practices for cost recovery.
