Evaluation of Financial Management Systems
Financial management system requirements for grantee organizations of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) are addressed in the NIH Grants Policy Statement (NIHGPS) and Title 45 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Part 74.21. Grantee organizations are expected to have certain systems, policies, and procedures in place for managing their own funds, equipment, and personnel. A system of clear roles and responsibilities should be delineated in each grantee organization, and should include the financial management systems. These systems include, but are not limited to, accounting, internal controls, and budgetary controls. Demonstration of a grantee’s management capabilities is one of the evaluative criteria used in the administrative review process prior to issuance of an award. To encourage uniformity in the review of a grantee’s financial management system, the NIH has developed a questionnaire entitled "Evaluation of Financial Management Systems." The questionnaire is a tool designed to assist both grantee and NIH staff in assessing the grantee’s management capabilities. Concerns related to a grantee organization’s management capabilities may result in the determination to withhold an award, or issuance of an award with special terms and conditions in accordance with 45 CFR 74.14.
The questionnaire and related information follow.
