OMB Uniform Guidance

All federal awards and incremental funding actions made on or after December 26, 2014, are subject to the to the OMB  “Uniform Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles, and Audit Requirements for Federal Awards” (also known as “ Uniform Guidance” or “2 CFR 200”). The Uniform Guidance replaces A-21, A-110 and A-133.  

Existing federal awards that do not receive incremental funding with new terms and conditions will continue to be regulated under the terms and conditions of the federal award. The Uniform Guidance does not retroactively change the terms and conditions for funds a non-Federal entity has already received.

All ORSP policies have been updated to meet the requirements of the Uniform Guidance. In cases where there was a substantial change to the ORSP policy due to the change federal regulations, the previous version of the policy is available and should be used for existing awards that remain subject to A-21 and A-110.
