Uniform Guidance – UMBC Implementation

The University of Maryland Baltimore County will continue to follow the procurement requirement of OMB Circular A-110 and will utilize the grace period allowed in the Uniform Guidance.

The OMB Uniform Guidance is a new set of regulations (as of 12/26/2013) which consolidates several OMB Circulars, including A21, A110, and A133. These regulations impact the proposals you make for federal funding, the way grants and contracts are managed, and the cost principles that guide research at the University of Maryland Baltimore County.
