    • Conducting risk assessments and business reviews
    • Performing detailed budget analysis to determine the allowability, allocability, and reasonableness under applicable cost principles and their relationship to the objectives of proposed project

    • Responding to data calls, coordinating preparation for audits and reviews, handling the more complex, politically sensitive, higher-risk, unprecedented or unique financial assistance actions
    • Providing training, technical assistance, oversight, ethics advice, expertise, and consultation to program officials, awardees, review panels, applicants, recipients, and subrecipients as needed
