Government grants are in the news at the moment for all the wrong reasons. So, the pressure is on public servants to make sure their grant programs will pass the audit test. What does ‘good’ look like, and what do current troubles mean for the future of grant making?
OCM put together a panel of experts with experience across a range of jurisdictions seeking to answer the tough questions around grant management, establishing a robust governance structure for managing grants and ensuring that agencies are able to defend decisions relating to grants particularly where there is a need to spend stimulus money fast.
Our webinar looks at probity in government grant management processes including shining the spotlight on some of the recent risk areas and concerns around grant funding programs and grant management.
The panel included OCM Principal and Winston Churchill Trust Fellow Nick Sellars, Ms Jess Evans from the Commonwealth Department of Health and Ageing and Ms Michelle Huntsman, former Director of the Restart NSW Fund.
During the session we drew on innovative thought leadership across a number of jurisdictions as well as give participants an opportunity to ask the panel of experts their own hard hitting questions on the topic.
