The “Super Circular,” known formally as the Uniform Guidance: Cost Principles, Audit, and Administrative Requirements for Federal Awards, is a proposal to consolidate all current regulations for grants management into a single document that would apply uniformly to all recipient entities. The purpose of the proposal is to streamline grants management by reducing administrative burdens on recipients.
Officials from OMB have repeatedly stressed the importance placed on public comments. The final regulation, expected to be released within a year, will be shaped, in part, by the submitted comments. The deadline for comment submission was originally May 2nd; however, OMB extended the deadline to this Sunday to provide additional time for the public to weigh in on this landmark proposal. As of this morning, only 119 comments have been submitted.
