Memo Clarifies Single Audit Relief Provisions
Posted by Michelle Sylvia Spriggs on Tue, Jun 30, 2020 @ 11:21 AM

Thanks to a recent memo from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), some organizations subject to the Uniform Grant Guidance will no longer be provided an extension to file their Single Audit with the Federal Audit Clearinghouse. Memo M-20-26, Extension of Administrative Relief for Recipients and Applicants of Federal Financial Assistance Directly Impacted by the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) due to Loss of Operations eliminates a previous six-month extension that had been granted to organizations with fiscal year ends falling between Dec. 31, 2019, through June 30, 2020. Those Single Audits would be due within the normal due date under the Uniform Grant Guidance, nine months after the fiscal year end.

Four Lessons Learned from Year One of the Uniform Grant Guidance
Posted by Michelle Spriggs on Fri, May 20, 2016 @ 01:17 PM

The Uniform Grant Guidance (2 CFR 200), released in December 2013, replaced several Office of Management and Budget (OMB) administrative, cost and audit circulars, and as a result, it changed the way many not-for-profit organizations and universities administered their grants.

New awards and funding increments to existing awards to which the federal agency modified the terms and conditions received after December 26, 2014, must follow the administrative requirements and cost principles under Uniform Grant Guidance (UGG). The new Single Audit requirements are effective for fiscal years beginning after December 26, 2014. For most not-for-profit organizations, that means the first time they will be subject to the new Single Audit requirements will be for their upcoming June 30, 2016 year-end.

Preparing for Subpart F of the Uniform Grant Guidance
Posted by Michelle Spriggs on Fri, Nov 13, 2015 @ 03:00 PM

The final phase of the Office of Management and Budget’s Uniform Grant Guidance is nearly here, which means nonfederal agencies should be gearing up for the changes coming to their Single Audits.

OMB released 2 CFR 200: Uniform Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles and Audit Requirements for Federal Awards (Uniform Grant Guidance) in December 2013. The Uniform Grant Guidance affects all nonfederal entities that receive grants and replaced rules in eight OMB Cost Circulars, including the A-133. Nonfederal entities began applying the changes to administrative requirements and cost principles to new federal awards received after December 26, 2014, and to additional funding to existing awards made after that date. For more information, please see, Implementing the Uniform Grant Reform Guidance.
