On March 9, HANO hosted an informational briefing, “New Rules for Government Grants and Contracts,” featuring expert Victoria Collin, senior policy analyst at the White House Office of Management and Budget. About 80 nonprofit executive directors, CFO’s, grant and contract managers, and others attended the briefing to learn about the new regulations and how they impact nonprofits.
Collin presented the OMB's Uniform Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles and Audit Requirements for Federal Awards, called the "Uniform Guidance,” which is effective for awards issued on or after Dec. 26, 2014. All awards previous to that date are subject to the former rules.
The new Uniform Guidance focuses on transparency and strengthening oversight, reducing the risk of waste, fraud and abuse, and reducing administrative burden. The Uniform Guidance still possesses some of the same language as its predecessor but it is now compacted and organized differently to eliminate contradictions and duplications, making it more user-friendly and easier to navigate. The new guidance also focuses more on the performance of the grantee over focusing on compliance.
