The OMB Uniform Guidance: Key Issues for Universities
The Council on Financial Assistance Reform and the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) officially published the “Uniform Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles, and Audit Requirements for Federal Awards” in the Federal Register.
The new OMB uniform guidance was released on December 26, 2013. The guidance, or Omni-Circular, consolidates eight OMB circulars into a single document and changes some fundamental concepts underlying the management of sponsored programs.
The Office of Sponsored Programs (OSP), in conjunction with Grant and Contract Accounting (GCA), will host a webinar sponsored by NCURA to disseminate vital information that universities need to understand regarding the new guidance, and how it will affect our current policies and business practices: Conflict of Interest, Subrecipient Monitoring, Fringe Benefits and other financial and non-financial administrative matters.
The new guidance is the single most significant change in research regulations in the last 50 years. Thus, OSP and GCA strongly encourage all central and unit-level pre- and post-award research professionals at AU to attend this webinar to get a general overview of the scope of impending changes to federal regulations that will influence the content of research-related work with AU faculty.
Details of the the webinar are found below:
When: May 14, 2014, 1:00 - 3:30 pm
Where: Mary Graydon Center 4 and 5
Please RSVP with subject line Webinar to email@example.com providing your name, job title, and academic unit.
The final guidance will be located in Title 2 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Chapter I, and Chapter II, Parts 200, 215, 220, 225, and 230. In the meantime, click here for an overview of the OMB Uniform Grant Guidance.
