CEO 201: Training Webinar on Required Quarterly Reports will be presented by two team members of IDHS/SUPR. Rick Nance, Deputy Director of Business and Fiscal Operations and Joe Tracy, Manager of Contracts Development and Implementation, will present on the connection between the PPR documents and the Uniform Grant Agreement (UGA) and how these forms are used to monitor award performance and expenditures. Please note that time will be allotted for questions and discussion, and we encourage providers to bring their questions.
