Grant Ethics: The Ethics of Program Implementation and Reporting



Grant Ethics: The Ethics of Program Implementation and Reporting After a Grant is Funded
Session 7 of the Ethics Series

While ethics must be considered in all stages of the grant lifecycle, the part that most people worry about is program implementation and reporting. Here grant professionals worry about wearing orange jumpsuits because they wrote the report that said everything was fine when in reality it wasn’t. Whether your organization is challenged with following through with what they said they would do in the proposal narrative or spending the grant dollars as written in the budget, this session is for you!

We’ll examine the issues of ethics in both grant implementation and grant reporting because reporting should be about how the implementation has gone. Participants will learn:

      • how to use training to encourage ethical implementation, especially in grant spending
      • how to create a spending plan and data collection plan the reduce the risks for questionable financial management and evaluation
      • how to create a monitoring plan that encourages open, honest conversation about challenges without fear of accusations of ethical impropriety
