The Office of Management and Budget updated the financial management requirements for federal awards in the Uniform Grant Guidance.

As part of its move from compliance to performance, OMB’s new rules strengthen the reporting, record-keeping and internal controls of financial management systems. Under the Uniform Grant Guidance those with poor financial management systems may be subject to audits, cost disallowances and special conditions.

Is your organization fully up to speed and prepared for these changes?

As part of its continued move from compliance to performance, OMB strengthened rules under the Uniform Grant Guidance in the areas of reporting, record-keeping and internal control of financial management systems.

Additionally, with increased focus on risk assessments, financial management systems and processes have come under greater scrutiny. Grant recipients with financial management systems that do not comply with the Uniform Grant Guidance could be subject to audits, cost disallowances and high-risk classifications.
