Important Uniform Guidance Regulations

What is Uniform Guidance?
Uniform Guidance (UG) is a set of regulations consolidating several Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Circulars. Click here to read the full Uniform Guidance.

Why are we doing this now?
The UG requirements related to procurement will take effect July 1, 2018 for non-state entities. These sections focus on increased competition, documentation, and maintaining a consistent procurement process.

How does this affect you?
UG is required for all Federal Funded funds, but after engaging a variety of campus stakeholders, the University has chosen to adopt these changes for all purchases beginning on July 1, 2018. As a result we have updated:

  • Procurement Bidding policy
  • Sole Source definition
  • Conflict of Interest
  • Small and Minority Business Participation

To learn more about these changes, please see the related links to the right. Procurement Services has also scheduled training sessions to review these changes and answer questions (times to the right). For any other questions or clarifications, call the Procurement Help Desk at 631-4289.
