Document Number: 2014-28697
Type: Rule
Date: 2014-12-19
Agency: Agency for International Development, Agencies and Commissions, Department of the Interior, Department of Justice, Department of Labor, National Aeronautics and Space Administration, National Archives and Records Administration, National Science Foundation, Small Business Administration, Social Security Administration, Department of State, Department of Transportation, Department of Treasury, Department of Veterans Affairs, National Institute of Food and Agriculture, National Endowment for the Arts, Office of the Chief Financial Officer, National Endowment for the Humanities, Institute of Museum and Library Services, Department of Housing and Urban Development, Department of Homeland Security, Department of Agriculture, Commodity Credit Corporation, Farm Service Agency, Rural Business-Cooperative Service, Rural Housing Service, Rural Utilities Service, Department of Commerce, Corporation for National and Community Service, Department of Defense, Department of Education, Department of Energy, Environmental Protection Agency, Executive Office of the President, Management and Budget Office, National Drug Control Policy Office, Federal Emergency Management Agency, Department of Health and Human Services
This joint interim final rule implements for all Federal award-making agencies the final guidance Uniform Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles, and Audit Requirements for Federal Awards (Uniform Guidance) published by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) on December 26, 2013. This rule is necessary in order to incorporate into regulation and thus bring into effect the Uniform Guidance as required by OMB. Implementation of this guidance will reduce administrative burden and risk of waste, fraud, and abuse for the approximately $600 billion per year awarded in Federal financial assistance. The result will be more Federal dollars reprogrammed to support the mission, new entities able to compete and win awards, and ultimately a stronger framework to provide key services to American citizens and support the basic research that underpins the United States economy.
