Public agencies optimize their scarce resources through a series of decisions related to revenue and spending. Understanding the full cost of public services, and how internal costs should be allocated, is at the heart of government financial decision-making. MGT has assisted public agencies across the country with these critical choices for nearly half a century by providing trusted analysis and advice.
Our consultants are nationally-recognized experts in cost-of-service analysis and revenue recovery for government clients while improving compliance with cost accounting regulations. Our expertise and guidance will improve financial decision-making across your organization.
We are experts in the Uniform Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles, and Audit Requirements for Federal Awards (2 CFR Part 200) and how to comply with it and programmatic requirements. We understand the implications of plan results and the impact on operations and revenue recovery. To us, they are not a commodity.
Our proprietary software, MGTCAP, has helped clients recover hundreds of thousands to millions of dollars from federal and state programs.
We can also combine user fee studies with our other services and conduct organization wide revenue assessments to help agencies analyze revenue recovery from multiple angles.
We also help oversight agencies (and subrecipients) ensure they comply with 2 CFR Part 200 requirements and programmatic regulations related to subrecipient monitoring. This effort can include reviewing and developing procedures, assisting with development of interagency agreements, and conducting desk reviews and/or training.
FEMA funds are available to assist communities and agencies with COVID response efforts. To access these funds, the costs of allowable activities must be documented. We can assist you to identify, document, and request funds.
Meanwhile, we can also assist you to understand what is allowable under the CARES Act and other sources as they become available, including overlap amongst these sources, FEMA, and others. To maximize recoveries and minimize future audit exposure it is critical to understand what is allowable under each source.
Our goals with this effort are to:
MGT is dedicating staff to understanding constantly changing guidance from federal and state governments and the ever changing COVID landscape. We can also help with FEMA public assistance and mandatory report filing, updating cost allocation plans that likely have to be amended or changed as a result or organizational shifts and new funding sources, and documenting or creating business plans and procedures.
MGT recognizes that agency staff need assistance with various tasks to ensure maximum funding and business continuity.
