On December 26, 2013, the Office of Management and Budget issued guidance entitled Uniform Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles and Audit Requirements for Federal Awards (Uniform Guidance). It is effective December 26, 2014. This guidance replaces OMB Circulars A-110, A-21, and A-133. The Uniform Guidance is part of major reform initiative of the federal government to streamline the process for making and monitoring assistance awards (grants and cooperative agreements), and to reduce the administrative burden while increasing accountability and transparency in federal awards management.
On Wednesday, May 14th at 10:00am – 12:30pm (PDT), the Office of Research and the School of Medicine are hosting the National Council of University Research Administrators’ webcast entitled: “The OMB Uniform Guidance: Key issues for Universities” at the following locations:

2) UCI Medical Center, Building 23, Room 123
Please join us for this informative session that will provide an overview of the Uniform Guidance and key issues for Universities to consider when implementing it. More information about this webcast may be found below and at NCURA’s website.
(Information will be shared at the Spring QRAM on May 21st regarding UC’s and UCI’s efforts to implement the Uniform Guidance.)
We look forward to seeing you on May 14th.
