Quarterly Forum:  November 2014

The Office of Sponsored Research is pleased to announce that we will be hosting quarterly forums for the research community.  This first forum will provide an opportunity to learn about the upcoming changes to the guidelines for federally sponsored programs laid out in the new Uniform Guidance.  Following the presentation, additional updates will be provided by the OSR directors as well as a time for networking with colleagues over light refreshments.

Description of Presentation:  The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) issued the “Uniform Administrative Requirements (2C.F.R. Chapter I, Chapter II, Part 200).  Effective 12/26/2014 federal agencies must apply these requirements to new awards and may apply them to awards with additional funding increments.  Also known as “The Uniform Guidance” these guidelines supersede OMB Circulars A-21 (2C.F.R. Part 220), A-110 (2 C.F.R. Part 215), and A-133 as well as A50 with regards to Single Audit Act follow-up.  The purpose of this presentation is to provide a framework for research administrators to know what is new, what has changed and what is staying the same when it comes to managing federally sponsored activities.
