The Office of Justice Programs offers financial management training for our award recipients.  Successful completion of one of the financial management trainings below will satisfy the training requirement for the points of contact and financial points of contact of an award.

DOJ Grants Financial Management Online Training

This training is designed for individuals responsible for the financial administration of discretionary and/or formula grants awarded from federal grant-in-aid programs administered by various program offices at the Department of Justice, including the:

  • Office of Justice Programs
  • Office of Community Oriented Policing Services
  • Office on Violence Against Women

In its 24 modules, this training emphasizes the basics of federal grants management.  The topics discussed are similar to the ones covered in the two-day Financial Management seminars hosted by the DOJ Office of the Chief Financial Officer each year.  DOJ is offering this online version of the seminars to give you, a current grantee, the ability to complete federal grants management training from your desktop in place of traveling to the onsite trainings.  The only prerequisite for taking this online training is that you must be a direct award recipient with a current grant and/or cooperative agreement as awarded by one of the DOJ grant-making agencies listed.  Click here to take the DOJ Grants Financial Management Online Training.

Financial Management Training Seminars

The Financial Management Training Seminars are designed for individuals responsible for the financial administration of discretionary/formula awards and cooperative agreements awarded from federal grant-in-aid programs administered by OJP program offices.  Officials from OJP's Office of the Chief Financial Officer will lead all seminars.  Each seminar consists of two full days of presentations and financial exercises.

Please visit the Financial Management Training Seminars webpage to receive additional information, including an overview of the training agenda, and important dates, times and locations.  Please have your organization's vendor identification number available during the registration process.  The training is free, but attendees are responsible for transportation, lodging and meal expenses.  The seminar format is informal and the dress code is business casual.

An email announcing registration periods for each seminar is sent in advance to all active OJP grant holders.  Reservations are subject to availability, so register as soon as possible.  Attendees will be sent a registration email confirmation upon review and approval by OJP.  No onsite registration or walk-ins are permitted.
