NSF: Award General Conditions Updates – Incorporate 2 CFR 200

The National Science Foundation (NSF) announced updates to their Award General Conditions to incorporate the revised 2 CFR 200.

What this means

At the October 2020 MRAM we discussed the federal government’s recent updates to 2 CFR 200 (the Uniform Guidance). It is up to each federal agency to adapt those updates into their own regulations.

NSF is announcing they have incorporated these updates into their guidance and that these updates will eventually become part of their Proposal & Award Policies & Procedures Guide (PAPPG). These updates apply to new awards and funding amendments made on or after November 12th, 2020.

OSP and PAFC have reviewed NSF’s revisions and determined that NSF has not deviated from the 2 CFR 200 updates.
