FIU Implementation of OMB Uniform Guidance for Federal Awards

The Federal Office of Management and Budget (OMB) issued final guidance on administrative requirements, cost principles, and audit requirements for Federal awards (which includes research grant awards) in the Federal Register, on December 26, 2013.

Per the OMB this guidance “will supersede requirements from OMB Circulars A-21, A-87, A-110, and A-122 (which have been placed in 2 C.F.R. Parts 220, 225, 215, and 230); Circulars A-89, A-102, and A-133; and the guidance in Circular A-50 on Single Audit Act follow-up.”

The Uniform Guidance is also known as the Omni-Guidance, Supercircular and 2 CFR 200.

This website has been created as the focal clearing house for information regarding FIU’s implementation plans to ensure compliance with the Uniform Guidance which went into effect on December 26, 2014.
