Navigating Uniform Guidance

As of December 2014, the OMB Uniform Guidance “Super Circular” directive has required organizations receiving federal grants to implement new standards related to various aspects of reporting and auditing. However, it is clear that many recipients and sub-recipients, are still struggling to understand the full scope of the new guidelines—much less implement them. Even as grant reform rules were intended to streamline administration, audit, and cost principles, they have also created quite a bit of confusion among participants.
