Effective July 1, 2018, The Ohio State University Office of Sponsored Programs (OSP) will be implementing new purchasing policies and procedures in order to comply with the procurement requirements (2 CFR 200.318 – 326) of the Office of Management and Budget’s “Uniform Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles and Audit Requirements for Federal Awards,” commonly known as “Uniform Guidance.” Uniform Guidance changes focus on ensuring full and open competition and increased transparency in the procurement process. In general, the new Uniform Guidance procurement regulations are more prescriptive than the previous guidance (OBM Circular A-110).
We recommend that you read the full text of the procurement sections of Uniform Guidance. Additional information is posted on the OSP website:
OSP Procurement staff are available to assist you with the new regulations and answer any questions you may have. Call 614-292-6871 for assistance.
