The OMB Uniform Guidance (also known as: the Omni Guidance, the Omni Circular, the Super Circular, and the Uniform Grant Guidance) is a new set of regulations which consolidates several OMB Circulars, including A21, A110, and A133. These regulations, located at 2 CFR 200, (CFR=Code of Federal Regulations) impact the proposals you make for federal funding, the way grants and contracts are managed, and the cost principles that guide research at the University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science.
