Policies, Procedures & Guidance

Federal and State Regulations

When a sponsor provides federal funding for a project, either directly or indirectly as pass-through funds, there are specific compliance requirements.

Federal Regulations - The University and the PI/PD, in accepting an award from a sponsoring agency, assume the responsibility for the financial, technical, and administrative aspects of the award. There are five principal sets of federal regulations that provide guidance in the financial and programmatic management of awards to universities:

2 CFR Part 200Uniform Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles, and Audit Requirements for Federal Awards - Effective 12/26/2014

2 CFR Part, 220 (OMB Circular A-21)Cost Principles for Educational Institutions - Principles for Determining Costs Applicable to Grants, Contracts, and Other Agreements with Educational Institutions - (Note that A-21 applies to contracts and to subrecipients performing work under federal awards.)

2 CFR Part, 215 (OMB Circular A-110)Uniform Administrative Requirements for Grants and Other Agreements with Institutions of Higher Education, Hospitals, and Other Non-Profit Organizations - (Note that federal contracts are subject to Federal Acquisition Regulations rather than A-110).
