NSF and the Uniform Guidance

The National Science Foundation (NSF) has issued a set of frequently asked questions (FAQs) on NSF’s implementation of 2 CFR § 200, Uniform Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles, and Audit Requirements for Federal Awards (Uniform Guidance).  The Uniform Guidance is effective for awards and funding increments on existing awards made on or after December 26, 2014. The Uniform Guidance will not be incorporated in the following circumstances:

1) If the award is a standard grant made prior to December 26, 2014;
2) If the award is a continuing grant that has received all of its funding increments prior to December 26, 2014.

NSF will update the FAQs as new questions arise.
