OMB Uniform Guidance

The Office of Management and Budget, on December 26, 2013,  published in the Federal Register the “Uniform Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles, and Audit Requirements for Federal Awards; Final Rule ("Uniform Guidance"), 2 CFR Chapter I, Chapter II, Part 200.

The Uniform Guidance which will supersede requirements set forth in OMB Circulars A-21 , A-110, and A-133; has an effective date of December 26th, 2014, with the exception of the audit requirements, which are scheduled to be effective the first fiscal year that begins after December 26, 2014.  Each federal agency has been charged with developing its own implementation plan and submitting that plan to OMB for approval. It is anticipated that each agency will then publish a plan which will require assessment and analysis.

In preparation for the December 26th, 2014 implementation date, CU Boulder Research Administration has created the following working groups which meet as noted below.  Working Groups will be completing their work on or before August 31st.  Anyone with an interest in these meetings is encouraged to attend.

Each working group has a chair, as well as representation from departments and institutes and central Research Administration. The groups are responsible for:

  • Determining the impact of the new regulations to existing policy and processes
  • Identifying potential policy revisions, if needed, and           
  • Recommending and drafting training materials
The working groups are coordinated by Beth Kingsley, Grant Officer, and Beth Kroger, JILA Chief of Operations and Nasrin Khoshand, SPA Compliance Manager who will manage communications and generate the training schedule. They are organizing efforts on the Boulder campus efforts and working with CU Denver/Anschutz and CU Colorado Springs to share interpretations to assure uniformity, as feasible. Working group reports are submitted to Denitta Ward  and James Lei for final review and implementation.
