Uniform Guidance

The Medical Center has delayed the implementation of the Uniform Guidance Procurement Standards until July 1, 2017 as provided by the waiver of the procurement rules stated in COFAR FAQ, Section 110-6.  In the interim, the OMB Circulars will apply to grants and cooperative agreements.

Update on Uniform Guidance

May 17, the following will be available in the Federal Register. However, this pre-notice should be considered official.

In summary: “For all non-Federal entities, there is an additional one-year grace period for implementation of the procurement standards in 2 CFR 200.317 through 200.326. This means the grace period for non-Federal entities extends through December 25, 2017, and the implementation date for the procurement standards will start for fiscal years beginning on or after December 26, 2017.”
