The Uniform Grants Guidance (also known as the “OMB Super Circular”) has changed.  Following a five-year review, the Office of Management and Budget published its long-anticipated revisions to the Uniform Guidance last year.  Unfortunately, the pandemic overshadowed this first comprehensive update to the grants management rules since the Super Circular was originally issued in 2013.  However, the OMB’s changes to the Uniform Guidance are now in full effect, and new and revised provisions are found throughout the updated Uniform Guidance.  The OMB’s revisions include the definitions, procurement standards, award requirements, closeout procedures, termination authority, indirect cost rates, and cost principles–among others.  “Understanding the Revised Uniform Grants Guidance” will explain in detail the key changes to the Uniform Guidance and what they mean for grant-funded organizations.  By participating in this special two-hour webinar, you will learn what you (and your organization) need to know to comply with the updated Uniform Guidance.  Make your plans today to join your fellow grants management professionals at 2:00 pm Eastern Daylight Time on July 28, 2021, for “Understanding the Revised Uniform Grants Guidance.”
