New Uniform Guidance
The Uniform Guidance: Uniform Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles, and Audit Requirements for Federal Awards (“Uniform Guidance”) has been issued by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB).
The goal of the Uniform Guidance is to streamline the regulations and requirements for grants management across the Federal government. Eight previous Federal regulations, separated by subject area and type of organization, have been included in a single, comprehensive policy guide. The Uniform Guidance is applicable to all organizations seeking and receiving Federal funding.
HHS/HRSA has implemented the Uniform Guidance at 45 CFR 75.
The administrative requirements and cost principles are effective for new awards and to additional funding on existing awards as of December 26, 2014. The audit requirements apply to audits of organizations with fiscal years beginning on/after December 26, 2014. Existing awards that do not receive additional funding will continue to be administered by the terms and conditions in effect at the time of the original award.
Sub Accounting (PPT - 165 KB): Most payments for the HRSA awards are currently made via pooled accounts in PMS, which is a centralized grants payment and cash management system operated by the Division of Payment Management (DPM) HHS.
