The Super Circular: What the New Rules Mean for Recipients of Federal Grant Awards 

Wednesday, June 18, 2014
8:30 am - 4:00 pm

As 2013 came to a close, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) issued the long-awaited final rule to the Uniform Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles, and Audit Requirements for Federal Awards, more commonly known as the “Super Circular.” Among other things, this rule streamlines eight Federal regulations (including OMB Circulars A-110, A-122, and A-133) into a single, comprehensive policy guide and affords the Federal government the ability to better administer the $600 billion awarded annually for grants, cooperative agreements, and other types of financial assistance. While the Super Circular does not entirely change the eight Federal regulations from which it is derived, it does include some noteworthy changes that will have important implications for all nonprofit recipients of, and applicants for, Federal grants and cooperative agreements.

Date: June 18, 2014
Time: 8:30 - 4:00
Cost: $395
