New Uniform Guidance

2 CFR, Part 200: Uniform Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles, and Audit Requirements for Federal Awardsis a new guidance document from the Federal Office of Management and Budget that is intended to reduce the administrative burden and cost of compliance for Federal grantees.  It combines previous compliance circulars and introduces new requirements. 

The new Uniform Guidance went into effect on December 26, 2014.  Awards made prior to this date will continue to be subject to OMB Circulars A-21, A-110, and A-133.  Awards made on or after this date are subject to the new guidance, as are subawards executed from those awards. 

This Quick Guide is intended to highlight the most significant changes that will have an impact on sponsored project activity at EKU.  The Forms page of the Sponsored Programs website has been updated to reflect changes included here, including a new version of the Internal Review and Approval Form.
