The OMB Super Circular: What the New Rules Mean for Nonprofit Recipients of Federal Awards

As 2013 came to a close, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) issued the long-awaited final rule to the Uniform Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles, and Audit Requirements for Federal Awards, more commonly known as the “Super Circular.” Among other things, this rule streamlines eight Federal regulations (including OMB Circulars A-110, A-122, and A-133) into a single, comprehensive policy guide and affords the Federal government the ability to better administer the $600 billion awarded annually for grants, cooperative agreements, and other types of financial assistance. While the Super Circular does not entirely change the eight Federal regulations from which it is derived, it does include some noteworthy changes that will have important implications for all nonprofit recipients of, and applicants for, Federal grants and cooperative agreements.

Join us for a discussion on the new Super Circular, including:
  • The goals of OMB in creating the Super Circular;
  • The structure and basic tenets of the Super Circular;
  • Notable aspects of the Super Circular for nonprofits; and
  • Important differences between the Super Circular and the predecessor circulars.

In addition to Venable's experienced practitioners in this area, the program will feature a senior attorney from one of the nation's larger federal nonprofit award recipients who has become a leading expert on the new Super Circular. For any current or would-be federal award recipient, this is a program you will not want to miss.
