OMB Combines Grants Management Circulars into One
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.
OMB is trumpeting the new guidance, which combines the eight traditional OMB grants circulars into one overall policy guide. By streamlining eight federal regulations into a single, comprehensive policy guide, "the government can better administer more than $600 billion awarded annually for grants and other types of financial assistance by decreasing administrative burden for recipients and reducing the risk of waste, fraud and abuse.”
