Note: Regarding New Uniform Guidance
A key administration priority, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has worked with agencies to focus federal grant resources on improving performance and outcomes while ensuring the financial integrity of taxpayer dollars. In December 2013, based on extensive public input, OMB published the guidance, Uniform Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles, and Audit Requirements for Federal Awards (“Uniform Guidance”), to agencies in the Federal Register that would streamline eight federal regulations into a single, comprehensive policy guide (2 CFR 200). OMB set a one-year timeline for the Uniform Guidance to take effect, allowing enough time for federal grant-making agencies and award recipients to update their policies to fully realize the benefits of the Uniform Guidance. The Uniform Guidance is effective for new awards made on or after December 26, 2014.
