We are pleased to announce that DHSEM has launched a new division-wide subrecipient monitoring initiative to streamline the monitoring process to:
DHSEM has established a Subrecipient Monitoring (SRM) Team to accomplish this goal. The SRM Team manages the review of single audit results and performs on-site monitoring (Site Visits) to review compliance with the Federal 2 CFR / OMB Circularadministrative requirements, cost principles and audit requirements of your grants. DHSEM will only monitor a sample of subrecipients (based upon the annual risk assessment) on an annual basis and we will contact you directly if your organization is selected for an on-site monitoring visit.
Additionally, DHSEM Program Managers, Grant Analysts, and/or Regional Field Managers may contact your organization to perform the following grant tasks:
We hope that this new initiative will increase and enhance our working relations to keep Colorado safe.
