Why Hire Us?

1. We know the law.

Our success depends on deep analysis and current knowledge of federal and state regulatory guidance. We keep on top of the ever-evolving standards that guide our work.
 

2. We’re experts in the fields we serve.

We hire skilled professionals with firsthand experience in the fields they cover and provide rigorous training in the art and science of grants monitoring and management.
 

3. We’re impartial.

As outsider observers, we’re incentivized to provide you with only objective, defensible, meaningful information.
 

4. We take a comprehensive approach to our work.

We draw on expertise from multiple professions: accounting, education, social services, and more to ensure our reviews and our program management practices are comprehensive. We offer a full spectrum of monitoring services, from building monitoring programs to providing risk assessments and technical assistance, to developing customized monitoring tools, as well as cradle-to-grave grants management.
 

5. We strive to make oversight meaningful.

We believe that oversight should not be punitive, but a meaningful process that improves both program compliance AND quality. Any finding of noncompliance should be grounded in law or policy and accompanied by actionable solutions that help agencies and grantees further their missions.

"I got into this business to make a difference. For years, I watched colleagues and friends bend over backwards to run their programs ethically, efficiently, and thoughtfully, despite being under-staffed and under-resourced, only to have an auditor come in and bury them in findings, some of which weren't legally supported.

A good grants oversight program shouldn't be punitive; it should make it easier for agencies and organizations to fulfill their missions and serve their communities. If you think of an audit as a visit to the emergency room, grants oversight is the preventative medicine that keeps you from having to go there.

At the Vander Weele Group, we're passionate about our work and our clients because we share their vision of making the world better."
