The transfer of financial assistance from Federal agencies to non-Federal entities can be a tricky subject. There are so many issues to cover from grant writing, evaluation, and management to fraud mitigation, detection, and remedy. These pre-award, award, and post-award activities can vary by agency, locality, and application. BMRA’s skilled instructors have the experience your agency needs to address these and other top issues in Federal Government grant management. BMRA knows this area of interest is growing quickly and more courses will be coming soon.

We are seeing a much greater increase in agencies looking for leadership and professional development courses to help round out the technical training for their employees. We are answering that demand with several new courses in this area, as well as bringing in instructors and facilitators with coaching, Myers Briggs (MBTI), Thomas Kilmann Instrument (TKI), and DiSC assessment credentialing. These powerful tools will not only help individuals but also entire departments if applied correctly. Adoption starts at the top, so before you recommend your people take these courses – take them yourself first!
