OMB to Host Webinar on Proposed Guidance
OMB announced plans to hold a webinar on the proposed Uniform Guidance on February 8, 2013 at 11:00 am EST at www.cfo.gov. The webinar is free and preregistration is not required. The webinar will explain the proposed policy changes and how the grants community will be impacted.
