Rashonda Harris
Faculty Member, Johns Hopkins University
Watch Recording
October 6, 10:30am – 11:15am

 
When we look at the job description for a DRA, they always fail to mention that you are a jack of all trades, therapist to your investigators, janitor, maintenance person and the overall go-to person for any and all issues. Your life is complicated. There is truly an art for the DRA to manage the many challenges that are faced and still make sure the investigators have the available resources to conduct science in the realm of compliance. You ROCK! This session will outline some of the daily challenges for the DRA and some great tools to help you manage your departments.

Participants will be encouraged to develop an individualized action plan following the session.

We welcome and encourage everyone to join the conversation. The principles to be discussed are universal to setting leadership goals, and both female and male leaders can gain insight into issues women face on their leadership journeys, thereby becoming inclusive leaders.

MAINTAINING FINANCIAL COMPLIANCE IN A REMOTE ENVIRONMENT

Watch Recording

While regulations are almost certain to change, compliance is the one constant that is always there. Sure, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) releases a new Compliance Supplement (2 CFR Part 200, Appendix XI Compliance Supplement) ever year, but the cycle of internal and external audits run like clockwork. So how has the pandemic impacted your internal controls? What policies or procedures have been modified to adjust for working remotely? If you haven’t asked these questions, chances are, your auditors have. This session will focus on key areas to evaluate for fiscal compliance gaps while working remotely. From central business processes, like check deposits, to departmental reimbursement requests, ensuring proper fiscal compliance in a remote environment takes a village.

They may be the initial point of contact for the investigators and research staff for a variety of questions. Pre-award, post award, clinical and department administrators may wish they had more pertinent basic information on the various compliance topics. This session will serve as a “compliance 101” and address a variety of compliance topics and basic information research administrators need to know.
