Post Award Financial Administration Policies

Index to Policies for Administering Sponsored Programs

The purpose of this website is to provide links to policies and information about the treatment of costs for sponsored program accounts. Post-Award Administration must comply with University and State policies and procedures as well as the requirements of OMB (Office of Management and Budget) Circular A-21 and the related Cost Accounting Standards.

On December 26, 2013, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) issued Uniform Guidance that will replace the administrative, accounting, audit rules and principles currently promulgated in OMB Circulars A-21, A-110, and A-133. The Uniform Administrative Requirements, and Cost Principles found at will apply to new and incremental funding awarded on or after December 26, 2014.  Existing Federal awards will continue to be governed by the terms and conditions under which they were awarded.
