OMB Uniform Guidance

Uniform Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles, and Audit Requirements for Federal Awards

On December 26, 2013, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) issued Uniform Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles, and Audit Requirements for Federal Awards in the Federal Register. This "Uniform Guidance" will replace the administrative, accounting, audit rules and principles currently promulgated in the OMB Circulars, including A-21, A-110, and A-133.

The implementation of Uniform Guidance will affect the daily administration at all institutions of higher education that conduct federally-supported research, including the University of California.

UC Systemwide Uniform Guidance Workgroup

In preparation for the implementation of Uniform Guidance on December 26, 2014, the University of California has convened a working group of experts across the the UC system to analyze these new rules and develop implementations plans for the UC system.
