On October 5, 2023, OMB published a proposal for a fundamental rewrite of the Uniform Guidance 2 CFR 200. The White House announced that “the proposal will materially decrease the burden on recipients of Federal financial assistance, advance equity and job growth across the country, and meaningfully improve the administration of Federal financial assistance.” See links below.
Specifically, OMB states the following reasons for the proposed revisions: “(1) incorporating statutory requirements and administration priorities; (2) reducing agency and recipient burden; (3) clarifying sections that recipients or agencies have interpreted in different ways; and (4) rewriting applicable sections in plain language, improving flow, and addressing inconsistent use of terms.” The comments are due to OMB by December 4, 2023.
