Comprehensive federal grant reforms contained in 2 CFR 200: Uniform Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles and Audit Requirements for Federal Awards became effective December 26, 2014 and affect any new federal grant awards received after December 26, 2014. While the Uniform Grant Guidance contained in 2 CFR 200 incorporates many of the concepts and language directly from the prior OMB circulars, it replaces administrative changes to procurement standards; so, internal control documentation will require grantees to evaluate and revise existing policies to be in agreement with the Uniform Grant Guidance. This is the most expansive reform since the Single Audit Act of 1984. Ultimately, the new guidance will alter procedures and expectations for anyone who works with or monitors federal grants. The transition from compliance to a new emphasis on performance has changed the entire landscape.
