The new federal grants management regulations known as “Uniform Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles and Audit Requirements for Federal Awards (2 C.F.R 200)," or the Uniform Guidance went into effect December 26, 2014.  The Uniform Guidance consolidates, streamlines and supersedes eight existing OMB Ciriculars, including, A-21, A-110, and A-133.

All new awards and increments of funding made on or after December 26, 2014 will be subject to the new Guidance.

To support Brown's research community with the implementation of these new regulations, OSP is developing resources and tools to assist with the interpreting these new regulations, implementing required policy and/or procedure changes, and tracking awards under the new guidance.
