The White House Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Dec. 26, 2013 released its final guidance on "Uniform Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles, and Audit Requirements for Federal Awards." The guidance, termed here the Omni-Circular, supersedes the requirements of various other OMB circulars, including OMB Circular A-21, Cost Principles for Educational Institutions, and OMB Circular A-110, Uniform Administrative Requirements for Grants and Agreements With Institutions of Higher Education, Hospitals, and Other Non-Profit Organizations.
These new federal policies become effective for new federal awards and new funding for existing awards on Dec 26, 2014.
