Mary Lidstrom is UW's Vice Provost for Research.
The Office of Management and Budget released its grant reform regulations called the Uniform Grant Guidance (Omni-Circular). This guidance relates to administrative requirements, cost principles and audit requirements for federal awards.
The Omni Guidance Core Team was assembled to track and report on differences between past and new federal requirements including policy, procedure, and system changes. See the Uniform Grant Guidance webpage for timelines, and UW and federal/sponsor information.
Recent lapses in biosafety practices at federal laboratories prompted the NIH to urge grantees to participate in National Biosafety Stewardship Month in September. UW strongly encourages PIs and laboratory directors to inventory biohazardous agents and reexamine lab policies and procedures that impact biological safety.
