Post-Award Policies


OMB Uniform Guidance

Please note that all sponsored projects and awards effective as of December 26, 2014 will be required to meet the requirements of the OMB Uniform Guidance. For further information please follow the link below.

The Uniform Guidance (“UG”) is guidance to federal agencies which consolidates and replaces eight Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Circulars. It combines those circulars for Institutions of Higher Education–A-110 (Administrative requirements), A-21 (Cost principles), and A-133 (Audit requirements)–with those companion circulars applying to state and local governments, Indian tribal governments, and non-profits.
