Uniform Grant Guidance

  • The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) published new requirements for federal award programs entitled Uniform Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles, and Audit Requirements for Federal Awards (also known as the Super Circular) codified at 2 CFR 200.  The creation of uniform guidance is designed to streamline requirements and promote greater clarity and consistency across existing circulars.  This consolidation is a component of a larger federal effort to improve accountability for expenditures of federal money by placing a greater emphasis on performance over compliance.
