Circulars from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) and the new Uniform Guidance

The White House OMB circulars that long governed federal grants and agreements with institutions of higher education (et al.) have been replaced by what is known as the "Uniform Guidance."  Spelled out in 2 CFR 200., it incorporates the subject matter formerly found in OMB Circulars A-21 and A-110, and much more. MAXIMUS has recompiled 2 CFR 200 into a user-friendly PDF document available as a free download here.
