On December 26, 2013, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) issued the “Uniform Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles and Audit Requirements for Federal Awards," a/k/a the Uniform Guidance. The Uniform Guidance consolidates, streamlines and supersedes eight existing OMB Circulars, including Circulars A-21, A-110 and A-133. The new guidance, which affects all federal grants and contracts, took effect on December 26, 2014.
In response, Columbia University has set up a University-wide Uniform Guidance Task Force, with representatives from central administration and various Columbia schools active in research to coordinate implementation of the Uniform Guidance. This webpage will provide information and updates on the Uniform Guidance implementation and will be regularly updated as new material becomes available.
