On December 26, 2013, the White House Office of Management and Budget (OMB) issued final guidance entitled Uniform Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles, and Audit Requirements for Federal Awards in the Federal Register. Effective December 26, 2014, this “Uniform Guidance” replaced the administrative, accounting, audit rules and principles promulgated in eight OMB Circulars, including A-21, A-110, and A-133, and governs the administration of federal grants and cooperative agreements at all institutions of higher education, including Lewis & Clark College.
This is a major reform of how the federal government provides assistance awards—including grants—with the goal of increasing accountability and transparency while reducing the administrative burden on non-federal entities receiving federal awards. These new federal regulations became effective for new federal awards and new funding for existing awards on December 26, 2014. As allowed under the Federal Register dated December 19, 2014, Lewis & Clark has elected to delay implementation of the procurement standards outlined in 2 CFR 200.317 through 200.326 until new policies and procedures are fully developed, and will continue to comply with the procurement standards outlined in OMB Circular A-110 for Awards subject to the Uniform Guidance until July 1, 2018.
