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.
Although the recreational use of marijuana is legal in Washington State, existing federal regulations restrict the use of marijuana in research at the UW. Current guidance for UW researchers is available through the Office of Research. Submit questions to Research@UW.edu.
