Effective December 26, 2014, new federal grants will be subject to the requirements of 45 CFR Part 75, which implements 2 CFR Part 200 (“Uniform Guidance”). The Office of Management and Budget (“OMB”) has delayed the implementation requirements of Uniform Guidance for Procurement until May 31, 2018. The Procurement Office, along with the Office of Research Administration, will develop procurement policies and procedures consistent with the Uniform Guidance standards. Until new procurement policies and procedures are developed, Villanova University’s current policies and procedures, as well as the OMB circulars, will remain in effect.
