Research Terms and Conditions Implementing the Uniform Guidance

Dear Colleagues:

With the implementation of the Uniform Guidance in December, 2015, the Research Terms and Conditions (RTC), were suspended for new federal awards until a revised set of terms and conditions could be developed and implemented. On March 14, 2017, revised RTCs which address and implement the Uniform Guidance were announced by the U.S. Office of Management and Budget (OMB). In addition to the revised RTCs, the participating agencies have implemented Agency Specific Requirements (ASR) that supplement the RTCs.

The new RTCs and ASRs along with additional resources may be found at:

Agencies are implementing the RTCs and ASRs on different dates. Those implementation dates and statements may be found at:

Please note that the Department of Defense is not participating in the Research Terms and Conditions at this time.

For additional information, please contact your assigned Contract and Grant Officer in Sponsored Projects.
