Education and Trainings

We have recently partnered with grants compliance experts, Thompson Information Services. Since 1972, thousands of professionals in business, government, law and academia have relied on Thompson Information Services for the most authoritative, timely and practical guidance available. Throughout the years, these professionals have come to rely on Thompson for help complying with the ever-changing regulatory mandates facing their organizations in a variety of areas.

With the OMB's Uniform Grant Guidance having gone into effect in December 2014, it is crucial that anyone working on federal grants at CDU is properly trained to comply with these complex and often confusing new rules. The Office of Sponsored ProgrA.M.s has teA.M.ed up with Thompson Information Services in delivering trainings to Principal Investigators, ProgrA.M. Managers, Grant Administrators, Grant Account, Internal Auditors and others here at CDU.
