Available Courses/Registration

Each DOJ Financial Management training serves as a general reference to assist OJP, OVW, and COPS Office award recipients in fulfilling their fiduciary responsibility to safeguard grant funds and ensure funds are used for the purposes for which they were awarded. There may be instances where the award requirements differ among the three grant-making components. Therefore, recipients (and subrecipients) should refer to their award terms and conditions to determine the specific requirements that apply to their award.

In December 2014, the Department of Justice adopted a regulation that, for the most part, applies the administrative requirements, cost principles, and audit requirements set out at 2.C.F.R. Part 200 DOJ grants and cooperative agreements, starting with awards (including supplements) made by DOJ after December 26, 2014.

Background information and numerous resources related to this new DOJ regulation, referred to as “the Part 200 Uniform Requirements,” are available on the OJP website at https://ojp.gov/funding/Part200UniformRequirements.htm#.

As a self-study online training, both training courses allow you to proceed through the modules at your own pace. Throughout the modules we provide additional resources that can be printed. In addition, we offer a Case Study that is referenced in many of the module review questions. We suggest you print out the Case Study, become familiar with it, and keep it nearby for each set of review questions. The two courses that are available are:

  • TRAINING II — DOJ Grants Financial Management Training for Grants Awarded On or After 12/26/2014 

This particular DOJ resource supplements the information included in OJP’s Introduction to the Part 200 Uniform Requirements. DOJ expects every DOJ award recipient who uses this DOJ training resource to already be fully familiar with the information on OJP's Part 200 Uniform Requirements Resource Page, including the Introduction to the Part 200 Uniform Requirements, the DOJ Grants Financial Guide (if applicable), as well as the terms and conditions of the relevant award. The material covered in Training II applies to DOJ awards made on or after December 26, 2014. 

  • TRAINING I — DOJ Grants Financial Management Training for Grants Awarded Prior to 12/26/2014 

The Training I course offers basic financial management instruction for DOJ award recipients with Federal funding awarded prior to December 26, 2014. Similar to Training II, the Training I course, in collaboration with the 2014 OCFO Grants Financial Guide, emphasizes the laws, rules and regulations that impact the financial and administrative management of these earlier awards.

Welcome to the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) online Grants Financial Management 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 bureaus and offices at DOJ, 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 2-day Regional Financial Management seminars hosted by the DOJ Office of the Chief Financial Officer each year. DOJ is offering this online version of the regional 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 bureaus or offices listed.

If you are currently involved with the financial management of a DOJ award from one of the Bureaus or Offices listed above, please select the General Information tab to learn more about the course and decide if this is the right training option for you.
