Uniform Guidance: Interim Final Rule Published

The Office of Management and Budget has posted the interim joint final rule implementing the Uniform Guidance in the December 19, 2014 Federal Register.

The Federal Register notice, Federal Awarding Agency Regulatory Implementation of Office of Management and Budget’s Uniform Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles, and Audit Requirements for Federal Awards, is effective for new awards and for selected funding increments issued on or after December 26, 2014. The notice includes introductory comments, a listing of the technical corrections/amendments, and a posting of each agency’s implementation plan. The Uniform Guidance (2 CFR 200) will be updated to reflect the technical corrections/amendments.

The Council on Financial Assistance Reform (COFAR) has updated their site with information on the notice, including a Uniform Guidance Crosswalk for Federal Agency Exceptions and Additions.
