OMB Uniform Guidance
On December 26, 2013, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) released a final regulation called the Uniform Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles, and Audit Requirements for Federal Awards (2 CFR Part 200). This guidance, most often referred to as the Uniform Guidance (UG), supersedes requirements from OMB Circulars including A-21, A-110 and A-133, combining much of these regulations with others and incorporating a number of changes in how colleges and universities are expected to do business.
New federal regulations will become effective on December 26, 2014.
