Course Description: To deliver on the promise of a 21st-Century government that is more efficient, effective and transparent, the Federal government has streamlined its guidance on Administrative Requirements and Cost Principles for Federal awards.  This streamlining initiative is called the Uniform Guidance and was released on December 26, 2013.

The release of the Uniform Guidance and agency implementations impacts existing institutional policies, federal sponsor guidelines, and the terms and conditions expressed in federal awards. This session is designed to provide researchers important information on the changes incorporated in the Uniform Guidance, how these changes impact research administration policies and procedures, and familiarize them with the Uniform Guidance.
