Dear USAID, NIH or CDC Prime or Sub-Recipient,
On December 19, 2014, USAID and HHS/CDC, along with 24 other US Federal awarding agencies, promulgated in the Federal Register their regulations implementing the US Office of Management and Budget’s Uniform Guidance for the award, administration and audit of Federal grants and cooperative agreements. Going forward, USAID promulgated on December 26th its operational policies and procedures for use by its staff with a revision to Directives System (ADS) Chapter 303, “Grants and Cooperative Agreements to Non-Governmental Organizations,” and issued conforming revisions to its Standard Provisions for U.S. NGOs and Standard Provisions for Non-U.S. NGOs.
On March 31st, 2015 HHS/NIH published their new Grants Policy Statement which applies to all NIH grants and cooperative agreements for budget periods beginning on or after December 26, 2014 and awards that received supplemental funding on or after December 26, 2014. HHS/CDC will be amending their NOAs with the new 45 CFR 75 rules to replace and expand upon the 45 CFR 74 which had been the fundamental source for compliance guidance.
All Agencies will have had to introduce the new regulations and the effect on your agreements and your sub-agreements (if you have sub-recipients) will be significant. Essentially, all of the old regulations which governed your award (22 CFR 226/45 CFR 74, the Cost Principles (e.g., OMB A122 or A21), the USAID Mandatory Standard Provisions, the HHS/NIH Grants Policy Statement, etc.) have been replaced with new guidelines and regulatory framework.
Many of these new regulations will require changes in your organization’s policies and procedures. Now is the time to become familiar with the new USG operating environment. This course will also consider the new 10% Deminimis options which every recipient organization has the right to (under 2 CFR 200.414 (f) or 45 CFR 75.414(f) and will include the most up-to-date guidance on how to transition to the 10% environment.
Now is the time to learn the new rules with proven experts in the field. Help get your organization on board and up to speed. Join CUGH and SustainAbility Solutions next February 29 and March 1.
